MADE Fast WP 3.7 - Adaptable Manufacturing Lines and Networks for one-of-a-kind Production in a Smart Factory

To allow one-of-a-kind production of customizable products, highly flexible and adaptable production solutions are necessary. Such flexible and adaptable solutions are needed on both process-level, machine-level, line-level and factory-level. In this project, we mainly address the factory and line-level, investigating 1) how to design the digital backbone of a smart factory enabling one-piece order flow and 2) how flexible, intelligent machinery (cyber physical systems) are orchestrated into production lines or alternative structures (such as networks, swarms etc.) allowing dynamic product routing. The overall goal is to identify suitable production structures for high mix – high volume production, and demonstrate the potential in integrating intelligent machinery into a digital ecosystem.
