Siemens joins partners to drive forward digitalization of industrial production
- Research project “Road to Digital Production (R2D)” targets implementation of the smart factory concept
- Execution as part of the “Information and Communication Technology” program funded by the Free State of Bavaria
- Project implementation in partnership with the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS, its Fraunhofer Center for Applied Research on Supply Chain Services SCS and the companies iTiZZiMO and KINEXON
Siemens is joining forces with three partners to take part in the research project “Road to Digital Production (R2D)” supported by the Bavarian State Ministry for Economic Affairs and the Media, Energy and Technology which is aimed at developing improved technologies, interfaces and infrastructures for the implementation of digital industrial production. Since September 2016, the interdisciplinary team of experts has been working to digitally map and integrate the process landscape of industrial mass production down to the workshop level.
Siemens and its associates, the Fraunhofer IIS, Fraunhofer SCS, iTiZZiMO and KINEXON, launched the research project “Road to Digital Production (R2D)” sponsored by the Bavarian Ministry for Economic Affairs as part of its Digital Bavaria Initiative. The declared aim of the 26-month project is to advance the development of products and technologies enabling the implementation of digital industrial production. The research and development project will set out to demonstrate that digitalization will not only increase efficiency but also pave the way for optimum quality assurance. With this objective in view, it will be helping to develop new technologies for Cyber-Physical Production Systems (CPPS) and defining principles and methods for batch size 1 manufacture and assembly of a product.
