Validating OSA in Industrial CIM Environments

Objective

VOICE's main objectives are to:

- Demonstrate that the Open System Architecture proposed in the CIM-OSA project (2422 and 5288) is a suitable framework for integration and overall optimisation of manufacturing systems.
- Carry out practical experimentation and validation of the concepts, methods and tools proposed in CIM-OSA and related projects. Three different applications will be modelled and will be partially implemented on one research and two industrial pilot sites. These pilots will validate the CIM-OSA integrated infrastructure and modelling concepts in machine tool manufacturing, automotive assembly and aluminium semi-processing application environments.
- Contribute to a rapid proliferation of CIM systems within European industries.
- Industry-related CIM-OSA partial models will be developed and implemented in research and industrial platforms. At the end of the project, VOICE research partners will give assistance to SMEs and to their suppliers interested in implementing the partial models obtained, since CIM consulting is part of their main mission.

The project intends to contribute to ESPRIT towards an advanced state-of-the-art in the areas of CIM-OSA concepts, methods and tools. Consequently, a close relationship is established with ESPRIT project 2422 and 5288 and related projects in order to have both a deep understanding of results of these projects and give constant feedback from the experiments.
