Demonstrating and testing smart digitalisation for sustainable human-centred automation in production

The project includes three testbed-based projects that will evaluate and validate new user-adapted and digital solutions for information sharing, work instructions, and resource planning in manufacturing contexts. An existing testbed environment, Chalmers Smart Industry Lab, will be utilized by the consortium to test increased efficiency and flexibility of implemented information and production systems. Expected industrial impacts are e.g. reduced cycle-time; operator empowerment; reduced time from idea to implementation of digital solutions integrating hard- and software solutions. Results will be disseminated to industries also outside the project as well as to universities and institutes. Results will be mediated both through direct and digital channels, aiming for widespread adoption and successful use of digitalized solutions for information sharing.
