The objective of this project is to develop an integrated shop-floor control system, incorporating online factory data-collection equipment and an appropriate Shop-Floor Communication Network (SFCN).
The system will consist of:
Integrated application software will be developed for shop-floor scheduling, shop-floor monitoring, quality assurance and maintenance management.
The major advances over existing systems will be modularity, low-cost implementation, user-friendliness, online interaction, reliability, and a standardised approach to shop-floor data collection.
Prototypes will be implemented and evaluated in three industrial production facilities.
