Zero Defect Manufacturing Platform

Project description

New technology for the factory of the future

Factories with a high interoperability level require an extendable platform to reach the goal of zero defects. The EU-funded ZDMP project is combining state-of-the-art zero-defect technological approaches based on commercial-grade or open-source software, with built-in software for any gaps, and with an open development approach and app store. It will allow end users to connect their system to benefit from the features of the platform, including product and production quality assurance. ZDMP can also simplify processes by connecting existing (and new) devices and sensors, while enabling connections to related information systems and operational assets. The platform will be piloted in the automotive, machine tool, electronics, and construction sectors.


Smart, SME Friendly, open, Zero-Defect Manufacturing Reference Platform, Apps, SDK, and Marketplace for Product and Process Quality in any factory for achieving excellence in European and Global Manufacturing The ZDMP project combines state of the art technological approaches based on commercial grade standard or open-source or previous-project software with an innovative integration concept based on proven and integrating technologies. It provides Process and Product Quality support on top of a platform layer. These all can utilise ZDMP core services which can also be used to build ZD Apps which are placed on the ZD Marketplace. The ultimate aim is to establish a sustainable business and technological approach at the end of the project and launch “ZDMP Limited” assisted by the possibility of a crowdsourcing approach and ZDMP ambassadors. ZDMPs pan-European consortium entails ICT Technology SMEs (ICE, ASC, SOFT), Manufacturing/ZD Technology SMEs (PROF, CET, VSYS), Technology Corporates (SAG, Scale Focus), 4 Sector and Cross-Domain Use cases (14 Partners SME/Large from Automotive, Machine Tools, Construction, Electronics), Researchers/Associations (IKERLAN, ITI, UNINOVA, TUT, and UPV), specialists (DIN – German Standards, Rooter – Regulation, UOS-ITI – Call Management). ZDMP also is supported by the Coordinating partners of FOF projects CREMA, vf-OS, and C2NET.
