Project: Aritifical Intelligence enhanced digital factory twins for wire harness manufacturing

Acronym FORTIFIER (Reference Number: MNET20/ICT-3763)
Duration 01/11/2020 - 01/11/2022
Project Topic FORTIFIER will develop a next generation solution for wire harness manufacturers by adding new capabilities in knowledge-based design and AI-enhanced Industry 4.0 technologies for flexible production and manufacturing in combination with product lifecycle management (PLM) capabilities and exploiting the benefits of new open international and publicly available standards. To achieve this, advanced simulation techniques for flexible wire harness are for the first time combined with selected artificial intelligence techniques for wire behaviour predictions, production planning, and manufacturing simulation of flexible wire harness assemblies including improved techniques for quality control. The need in trusted and secure supply chain management will be addressed by integrating existing block chain software. FORTIFIER aims to reduce design time by 30%, manufacturing planning cost by 25%, and automate data exchange, sharing and archiving processes, which will cut administrative and information search cost by 50%.
