QU4LITY project highlighted in APMS and FAIM conferences
A series of research papers about QU4LITY project were presented in two important conferences APMS and FAIM during the second week of September 2021. Lead by researchers from Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL), multiple research achievements of QU4LITY project were highlighted and disseminated via these two annual conferences. The APMS (Advances in Production Management Systems) conference, established in 1978, brings together leading international experts on production systems and logistics from academia, industry, and government to discuss pressing issues in smart manufacturing, operations management, supply chain management, and Industry 4.0 in the Artificial Intelligence era. The FAIM (Flexible Automation and Intelligent Manufacturing) International Conference series has been run in 26 cities in 14 countries in Europe, America and Asia, addressing both technology and management aspects.
International Conferences have always been the perfect opportunities for disseminating research achievements and exchanging ideas by gathering experts from academia, industry, and government. During the second week of September 2021, two famous international conferences – APMS2021 and FAIM2021 were held in a hybrid way with participants attending both physically and online. QU4LITY project partner EPFL, together with other collaborators, presented three research papers introducing topics related to QU4LITY projects and attracted much attention.
The paper “A Quality-Oriented Digital Twin Modelling Method for Manufacturing Processes Based on A Multi-Agent Architecture” presented in FAIM2021 by Dr. Xiaochen Zheng introduced the digital model developed in Work Package 2 of QU4LITY project which aims to provide a unified model to integrate relevant factors to achieve Zero Defect Manufacturing.
The paper “Supporting Digital Twin Integration Using Semantic Modeling and High-Level Architecture” presented in APMS2021 by Dr. Jinzhi Lu introduced the application of the GOPPRR approach to describe the integration of a distributed simulation of an AUV using the High-Level Architecture integration standard. MBSE framework.
The paper “Comparison Between Product and Process Oriented Zero-Defect Manufacturing (ZDM) Approaches” presented in APMS 2021 by Dr. Foivos Psarommatis introduced a novel method for quantifying the performance of product and process Zero Defect Manufacturing approaches in order to provide to manufacturers a tool for selecting the proper approach for their use case.
