Global-leading smart manufacturing through digital platforms, cross-cutting factors and skilled workforce


The ConnectedFactories II CSA focuses on the following targets and activities:

  1. Supporting a common and structured understanding of key enablers and cross-cutting factors with regard to the deployment of digital technologies, including digital platforms, for manufacturing, serving both as generic guidance, as well as for providing a mapping/analysis framework for use-cases,
  2. Identifying pathways to the industrial take-up of digital technologies and digital platforms by taking into account legacy systems, industrial requirements and challenges,
  3. Situating inspiring research and industrial state-of-the-art cases on these pathways and show how key enablers and cross-cutting factors are addressed along these pathways,
  4. Stimulating the matching of skills transfer offering with skills demand across Europe,
  5. Engaging with the research and industrial actors in both European and local fora: manufacturing companies, suppliers, etc., and herewith make sure that requirements and boundary conditions are reflected in the pathways to digitalisation of manufacturing, the use cases, the key enablers and cross-cutting factors,
  6. Generating a broad awareness about the key enablers and cross-cutting factors, pathways and inspiring cases. - The objectives of the ConnectedFactories II CSA and the associated activities will build on the results and the methodology of the ongoing ConnectedFactories CSA (concluding in August 2019).
