Learning Factories for Digital Transformation of SMEs (FactoRIS)

FactoRIS aims at supporting digital transformation of existing production infrastructure across RIS countries based SMEs, in order to accelerate the transition to waste-free manufacturing.

The project will start by identified typical challenges as well as developing best practice procedures for specific tasks aiming at waste minimisation, such as process optimization, condition monitoring, predictive maintenance, lifespan extension of equipment by retrofitting, etc. Proposed solutions will be demonstrated on real testbeds in laboratories of activity partners (learning factories). Technologies will include: simulation technologies (digital twins), data collection and evaluation in cloud, and other suitable enabling technologies. Since similar challenges are relevant to RIS countries in general, networking and sharing of good practices among activity partners will extend the impact to a transnational level.
