DIGItal MANufacturing Technologies for Zero-defect Industry 4.0 Production

DIGItal MANufacturing Technologies for Zero-defect Industry 4.0 Production

Objective

Industry 4.0 identifies a strategy aimed at enabling industry to a transition towards future ways of production. It refers to a set of recent innovations with potential to disrupt value chains, with a substantial impact particularly to the manufacturing sector. Industry 4.0 gravitates around one core rationale: recent progress in a variety of digital technologies has created unprecedented possibilities that result in huge improvements in operational effectiveness for manufacturing industries. The magnitude of this paradigm shift justified referring to Industry 4.0 as being the “Fourth Industrial Revolution”. There is a widespread consensus among the different stakeholders in the industry, at research institutions and in academia, that Industry 4.0 consists of essentially 9 clusters of key-enabling digital technologies that can radically innovate and disrupt the current manufacturing paradigms: Big Data and Analytics; Autonomous Robots; Simulation; Horizontal and Vertical System Integration; The Industrial Internet of Things; Cybersecurity; The Cloud; Additive Manufacturing; Augmented Reality.
The DIGIMAN4.0 ITN will provide world excellent research training to 15 ESRs (Early Stage Researchers) in the field of digital manufacturing technologies for Industry 4.0 production proposing:
(1) Innovative technological solutions for high quality, high throughput and high precision production (zero-defect precision mass-manufacturing of high performance products) for the manufacturing industry;
(2) Cutting edge multi-disciplinary training in different domains (Precision Manufacturing Technologies, Digital Manufacturing Technologies, Integrated Production Metrology, Lean Manufacturing, Production Management);
(3) Validation of different digital manufacturing technologies by integration into process chains for the production of advanced components in several sectors (medical and health-care, machine tool, hearing aid and micro acoustics, electronics, automotive, aerospace).
