The COMET Center for Digital Production is funded within the framework of COMET – Competence Centers for Excellent Technologies by BMK, BMDW, the states of Lower Austria, Vorarlberg and Vienna. The COMET program is managed by the FFG.
In cooperation with our partners, we develop solutions that enable:
|▪||Flexible, reconfigurable automation|
|▪||Interactive production planning|
|▪||Comprehensive access to process data|
|▪||Predictive quality assurance|
The “Pilotfabrik Industrie 4.0” of TU Wien allows testing and evaluation under realistic production conditions.
Based on real-time data supply at both machine level and resource planning entities, we develop solutions for:
|▪||Optimized, interactive production planning|
|▪||Self-learning process optimization (at machine and planning level)|
|▪||Resource consumption optimization|
The “Pilotfabrik Industrie 4.0” of TU Wien allows for rapid prototyping and demonstration by using sample data of typical production situations.
Using product virtualization, automated design, workshop connectivity and flexible automation, we develop solutions that enable the production of small batches (down to lot-size 1) with the same quality and production costs as larger series.
Production examples of the “Pilotfabrik Industrie 4.0” of TU Wien provide both a representative product variety and the required environment.
By providing concepts for the intra- and interorganizational coordination of workflows, decentralized production can be made more reliable and efficient. In addition, these approaches enable the creation of virtual “bottom-up” factories by individually bundling (manufacturing) technology-driven suppliers to form production network being on a higher layer of the supply chain hierarchy.
