Cloudification of Production Engineering for Predictive Digital Manufacturing

Reducing the consumption of energy, while increasing the usage of renewable energy

General description

Efficient energy use, sometimes simply called energy efficiency, is the goal to reduce the amount of energy required to provide products and services. (from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Efficient_energy_use)

Title Cloudification of Production Engineering for Predictive Digital Manufacturing
Description Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is essential for the digitalization of the manufacturing sector; notwithstanding, less than 25% of the manufacturing companies in Europe profit from ICT-enabled

 Optimizing design and production of electric devices Result title Optimizing design and production of electric devices Result comments While this has added some unplanned efforts to the experiment which then reduced the time available for the practical implementations, the cause seems quite unavoidable for wave 1 of the experiments
 Numerical modelling and simulation of heat treating processes Result description This applies especially when a new profile is being treated; the process involves a trial-and-error approach wasting time, energy and resources.
