The objective of SCOPES is to develop a system for the concurrent engineering of families of mechanical, electro-mechanical and electronic assemblies. The system will encompass the design of both the products and the production equipment and control systems used in their manufacture.

The work will cover the following aspects:

Pilot demonstrations are foreseen, covering manual and automated assembly scenarios. The consortium includes industrial members supplying CAD/CAM and shop-floor control systems, who will incorporate the results of the project into their products.
