Our latest projects include:
Zero-defect manufacturing strategies towards on-line production management for European factories. Funder: European Commission, Duration: October 2016 - September 2020. Researcher: Dr Zhengwen Huang and Dr Morad Danishvar. In this project Brunel offers event-based adaptive control and optimisation solution to minimise defect in the discrete automated manufacturing process. The machines and the robots will adapt to the variations in material, customer requirements and overall environmental conditions with the purpose to reduce production defect to a minimum and eventually to zero.
Predictive Maintenance Simulation
H2020-Factories of the Future programme - Predictive Maintenance simulation models and strategies wrapped around physical systems for Zero-unexpected-Breakdowns and increased operating life of Factories. Funder: European Commission Directorate-General for Research and Innovation Duration: October 2017 - July 2021
