Vendor integrated decentralized optimization of production facilities

Objective

The trend with designing production facilities is going to virtual factories where planning and programming of sub-systems are done in a virtual world. Here is the goal to react dynamically on changes (product change, errors, optimisation) in the virtual world. For this is a consistent and complete model of the production facility needed. Today models from subsystems (sub-models) are designed by various simulation tools. No methods for integration of the sub-models to a complete model of the production facility exist. The result of this project will be an infrastructure for vendor integrated decentralised modelling which consists of a model management combining the distributed models of the subsystems to a complete model and a communication platform enabling co-operative work between the sub-suppliers and the manufacturer or turn key suppliers for the secure transmission of models (geometric models, process models), program code, etc.
