sCorPiuS Report Summary

Project ID: 636906

Periodic Reporting for period 1 - sCorPiuS (European Roadmap for Cyber-Physical Systems in Manufacturing)

Reporting period: 2015-02-01 to 2016-01-31

Summary of the context and overall objectives of the project

sCorPiuS aims to define the roadmap for CPS4MFG (CPS for Manufacturing) in Europe and promote CPS adoption in Manufacturing sector to increase European Industry competitiveness.

Main Objectives of the project are:
To carry out an extensive analysis of the current framework and state-of-the art of CPS technologies, applications in industry, supplier and users as well the most relevant RD&I initiatives at global level;
To increase the understanding of how CPS technologies can improve engineering and manufacturing performance;
To analyze current development and needs in order to identify possible gaps and areas that need to be further researched;
To identify technological challenges and drivers in line with the needs of the vision for the future of engineering and manufacturing;
To develop, with the support of academic and industrial experts, a reference roadmap addressing the advances of CPSs (in terms of technology and implementation) that could also support the definition of further research streams in this area;
To increase knowledge and awareness (i.e. consensus building) about the use and impacts of CPSs in engineering and manufacturing by fostering a cross-sectorial dialogue involving potential users, experts and technology providers.

Work performed from the beginning of the project to the end of the period covered by the report and main results achieved so far

In the first project year has been completed activities related to:
WP1 State of the art of Cyber-Physical Systems in Manufacturing, specifically a two folds activity took place, first, an analysis of existing references in previous projects and initiatives, second a collection of knowledge from experts and stakeholders. That contributed to definition of stae of the art associated with a first segmentation (6 clusters) areas of potential impact and research.
WP2 Vision for the role of Cyber-Physical Systems in manufacturing, we executed Gap Analysis and Vision definition, that lead to the definition of the first version of the vision to be validated in defined (see T4.1) workshops.
WP4 Communication, Dissemination and Community building, first of all the communication material (presentations and flyer) was prepared; to such material in M13 a whitepaper with the vision will be also mada available. The web site was set up at The Dissemination Plan (D4.1) was released to the EC identifing key events to disseminate sCorPiuS results and to create an experts' network to generate consensus and discussion around CPS in Manufacturing

Progress beyond the state of the art and expected potential impact (including the socio-economic impact and the wider societal implications of the project so far)

"To be developped with WP3 "Roadmap for next generation of Cyber-Physical Systems" since M12"
