Demonstraing and testing smart digitalisation for sustainable human-centred automation in production
|Coordinator||CHALMERS TEKNISKA HÖGSKOLA AKTIEBOLAG - Institutionen för produkt- och produktionsutveckling|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 7 433 000|
|Project duration||May 2017 - September 2020|
|Venture||The strategic innovation programme for Production2030|

Purpose and goal
The project will evaluate and validate new user-adapted and digital solutions for information sharing, work instructions, and resource planning in manufacturing contexts. An existing testbed environment, Chalmers Smart Industry Lab, will be utilized by the consortium to test increased efficiency and flexibility of implemented information and production systems.
Expected results and effects
Expected industrial impacts are e.g. reduced cycle-time; operator empowerment; reduced time from idea to implementation of digital solutions integrating hard- and software solutions.
Planned approach and implementation
The different strategies and technologies for digitalisation will be tested in the lab as a first step, in pilot plant with company adjustments as a second step and the final step will be to test the chosen solutions within the production environment. The demonstrators in each projects will also be used for education for a broader range of companies outside the consortium and also for education of engineers at Chalmers.
