Project full name: Business Experiments in Cyber Physical Production Systems
Acronym: BEinCPPS
Grant agreement number: 680633
Deadline: 15th December 2016, at 17:00 Brussels local time
Expected duration of participation: 15 months, with expected commencement 1. April, 2017
Indicative budget for BEinCPPS Call-2: 1,200,000 €
Indicative budget for topics:
1. CPS-based Product Lifecycle and End-of-Life Management: € 240,000
2. CPS-based Factory Logistics Management: € 240,000
3. CPS-based Zero Defect Manufacturing: € 240,000
4. CPS Predictive maintenance: € 240,000
5. CPS Modelling and simulation: € 240,000

Integration of Cyber-Physical-System modules in manufacturing processes and process chains (application or equipment assessment experiments) to increase sophistication and automation in production SMEs and to create novel value added services linked to process surveillance and maintenance.
BeinCPPS Call-2 targets the development of equipment assessment experiments by Manufacturing SMEs. The objective is to carry out innovative experiments in CPPS-based manufacturing facilities provided by the applicants themselves and based on HW/SW components of the BEinCPPS reference architecture. The open call aims at addressing different industrial sectors or business cases with respect to the 5 BEinCPPS Industrial Champions. The presence in the consortium of a Manufacturing SME providing the experimentation facilities is mandatory.
1. CPS-based Product Lifecycle and End-of-Life Management. The Cyber and the Physical components of a CPPS artefact (Product) are characterised by quite different lifecycles, especially in the End of Life phase where the huge investments in CPPS could be partially recovered. Applicants are expected to propose their own experiments in this domain as well as providing the availability of the relevant CPPS manufacturing facility. Current BEinCPPS experimentations are located in the Rhone Alpes industrial champion in the moulds industry.
2. CPS-based Factory Logistics Management. CPPS play a fundamental role in the factory internal logistics: innovative experiments need to be developed specifically for planning, scheduling and monitoring raw materials and finite products inside the production system. Applicants are expected to propose their own experiments in this domain as well as providing the availability of the relevant CPPS manufacturing facility. Current BEinCPPS experimentations are located in the BEinCPPS Norte industrial champion in the shoes industry.
3. CPS-based Zero Defect Manufacturing. Innovative product quality assessment experiments are now enabled by CPS-based intelligent metrology and quality assessment systems. Applicants are expected to propose their own experiments in this domain as well as providing the availability of the relevant CPPS manufacturing facility. Current BEinCPPS experimentations are located in the Lombardia industrial champions in the white goods industry.
