Integrated framework for a cost-effective and EASE of Repair, Renovation and Re-use of machine tools within modern factory
Summary
EASE-R3 focuses on the selection of the best maintenance strategy, including decommissioning, such as renovation, repair, re-use, according to the minimization of Life Cycle Cost (LCC) and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) related parameters. Once the selection is performed, EASE-R3 then investigates different technologies supporting maintenance tasks such as Augmented Reality (AR)-based, Virtual Reality (VR), Condition monitoring. Innovativeness introduced compared to already existing Products/Services are: - EASE-R3 offers a solution that is better than the others as integrated framework. The technology allows to minimise costs related to maintenance as best maintenance strategy, effectiveness of use of resources. Moreover the technology adopted is not commonly used. Developed standards will secure easy integration into existing systems. - Model-based system extended by self-learning system. - Integrated and holistic approach (maintenance plus EOL) - Use of innovative technologies such as AR and VR - Self-contained tool (avoiding the requirement for additional software as MATLAB. Unique selling points are: - EASE-R3 proposes an integrated framework for the whole life of machine tools (from design to end of life phase). Furthermore, modules are enhanced with respect to the state of the art, as tools for maintenance and decommissioning decisions, augmented reality, etc. Standardization activities could be an adding value to the product. - Be able to renovate and reuse existing machines more cost effective than by a new one - Improvement of maintenance activities at marketing and costs level - Increase in maintainability of future design - Reducing the cost of ownership - Attractive to workers, people enjoy new technology like AR - Provide feasible long term maintenance - Reduce risks in management decisions - Reduce number of pieces of software - Better service to customer by not having breakdowns so customer isn’t left waiting
