Project Title MILLING PROCESS OPTIMIZATION BASED ON AI DRIVEN DASHBOARDS
Funding/budget 100 KEUR
Short project Summary
M-AID application experiment will apply artificial intelligence driven cyber-physical embedded systems (CPES) that will provide support to manufacturing SMEs in order to improve their activity from a process, maintenance and production point of view. The application experiment will apply and validate the developments over an aeronautic compressor case. The developed solution will offer currently not accessible information to optimize the cutting process by modifying the process parameters in cases where they can be improved, scheduling the maintenance to maximize the availability of the machine and organizing plant production. For that purpose, M-AID will integrate the latest ICT technologies for harvesting the huge quantity of data offered by machines and embedded systems, in which a hybrid artificial intelligence will be used, by combining predictive and prescriptive analysis solutions. In this way, the developed tool will provide support in the decision making of process optimization, predictive maintenance and production planning. The processed information will be combined with advanced dashboards, including wearables, wherein the surveillance and inputs from plant actors will be collected.
