WP5 – Vertical Integration

What will we do?

The development of the integration architecture that connects management and IT systems (ERP/MES), decision support systems (FabView and Simulation), the Advanced Plant Model and the resources on the shop floor (operators, robots and machines) is the goal of this workpackage. With this, changes in demand can be re-acted on dynamically.

The key role for the vertical integration plays the capability of performing a skill-based planning and execution of tasks while incorporating the current state of the plant model with a new level of information complexity and variety (e.g. physical dimensions, energy consumption).
