Develop and demonstrate a ‘Mini-factory’ concept for production of personalized skin care products for elderly population

Objective

Skin alterations within ageing are significant and visible, and therefore disturbing feature in the quality of life of aged people. Economic importance of this population is dramatically growing in Europe in the last decade. Regular skin care preparations are capable to cope with ageing symptoms to some extends, i.e. wrinkles, age spots and skin dryness, but limited in protecting skin from microbial contaminations, inflammation, irritation and other ageing related manifestations. A novel flexible customized skin care approach for better skin treatment is proposed by SuperFlex, combined with cost reduction of 30%, significant reduced environmental impact and a 50% reduction in time to market.
SuperFlex low cost and environmentally friendly concept will be a result of: 1). Low energy manufacturing of water/oil emulsions; 2) Green packaging; 3).Centralized management serving the on-site mini-factories; 4) Flexible units for on-site and by-demand production diminishing inventory needs; 5) LCA and LCC studies for platform optimization.
SuperFlex manufacturing concept of central factory and mini-factories extensions raises a mechanism for sophisticated options analysis of products to be designed and produced at operational level. An advanced cloud based ICT platform will include: 1). Integration of the manufacturing IT system for distributed control and monitoring of the production network [Enterprise Resource Planning; Secure Information Systems; Manufacturing Execution Systems; Standard for the Exchange of Product model data]; 2). A new Cyber physical system-enabled infrastructure approach for equipment integration; 3). A decision support system for cosmetic formulations according to biomarkers profile, expert evaluation and client requirements; 4).Mobile device supported customer feedback system.
SuperFlex achievement will be demonstrated within project period by design manufacturing and treating elderly population with personalized skincare products
