Toolkit Conceptualization for the Manufacturing Process Reconfiguration of a Machining Components Enterprise
With the target of Zero-Defect Manufacturing, the European Project Industrial Data Services for Quality Control in Smart Manufacturing (i4Q) aims to develop 22 software solutions based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) to optimize manufacturing processes, ensuring quality, effectiveness and interoperability among manufacturing companies. The solutions will be implemented in real manufacturing scenarios, where the outcomes of the project will be tested and evaluated. One of the solutions, i4Q Line Reconfiguration Toolkit, will be deployed in FACTOR, a manufacturing company dedicated to metal machining and precision turning. This paper covers: (i) the introduction of the pilot case and the project solutions; (ii) the goal that FACTOR aims to achieve by the implementation of the solutions; (iii) the main features of the Line Reconfiguration Toolkit solution and their alignment with the requirements exposed by FACTOR, and (iv) the expected results when applying i4Q Line Reconfiguration Toolkit in FACTOR.
