Holistic Framework and Information Model for the Factories of the Future
The Insititute for Information Management in Mechanical Engineering of the RWTH Aachen University in Germany would like to participate in the Horizon-2020-FoF-2015 Call and is looking for both industrial and academic partners to build up a consortium. The aims of our proposed project are to create a holisitic platform for production planning and optimisation. Our consistent factory information model will ensure interoperability between all layers of factory automation based on light-weight web application solutions. We would to be able to draw a picture of the Factories of the Future including the interconnection of production facilities and the embedding workers and maintenance suppliers for a better life-work balance.
