FLET 4.0

FLEet managemenT optimization through I4.0 enabled smart maintenance

Sector

Smart manufacturing

Product/Objective

The project addresses the problem of managing the data collected when servicing very different objects in order to optimize their costs and availability for the end user. This will be done by developing algorithms that enable intelligent information management in order to simulate scenarios, reduce time to data availability and to optimize maintenance.

Project Summary

To manage the data collected when servicing very different objects is achieved by developing algorithms that enable intelligent information management in order to simulate scenarios, reduce time to data availability and to optimize maintenance.

Innovation

For the aeronautics sector, the aim of the project is to create an iterative simulation model that integrates all the information described in order to predict landing plans and logistic and strategic indications, integrated with the planning of depot activities.

For the railway sector, the project intends to develop new enabling technologies and methodologies (based on service-oriented architecture (SOA) and human-machine interface (HMI) architecture) for operators directly involved in maintenance by developing tools based on non-traditional interaction approaches through the introduction of visual information systems support (augmented reality, reverse engineering) for remote assistance of railway vehicles and optoelectronic measurement systems for railway infrastructure.

For the space sector, the aim is to develop a system to highlight the alarms and checklist orders suggested to the operator by the anomaly identified or by the level of recentness (and therefore the necessary attention required) for the specific behaviour found.

ES Role

EnginSoft is the lead partner for the project’s first objective, dedicated to the Maintenace Planner module’s development. The purpose is to create an algorithm to generate a landing plan (Removal Plan) and a Maintenance Planner (MP) that can be applied to a fleet of aircraft engines to maximize their availability to end users and minimize the time and cost of routine and/or extraordinary maintenance work.
EnginSoft has a primary role both in coordinating the objective and in developing the algorithms and the iterative simulation model to predict the service status of a fleet of aircraft engines.

Research project

INFOS

INternationalisation of Veneto FOundry by networked Strategies

Il progetto supporta alcune aziende della rete SINFONET nell'utilizzo di servizi specialistici, di assistenza, orientamento, affiancamento, informazione e promozione dell’export, per promuovere non solo le proprie specificità ma anche l’intero complesso della filiera fonderia.

Research project

GAP

High-Performance Cast Iron and Aluminum Alloys for Innovative Components

The GAP Project’s innovativeness lies in the development of innovative metallic materials with multi-sector application potential, increased by experimentation with new specific technologies (e.g. the use of ceramic cores for die-casting, surface treatments, and joining techniques).

Research project

AMQ_TOOLS

Additive Manufacturing Quality and moniTOring cOntroL System

Metal Additive manufacturing is a complex operation that requires the fine-tuning of hundreds of processes parameters to obtain repeatability and a high quality design at dimensional, geometric, and structural levels. To help manufacturing companies address these challenges, AMQ_TOOLS develops an innovative quality-oriented decision support framework.
