Sub-Project Type: 2
Sub-projects for validation and/or testing of EFPF platform and services in digital manufacturing domains
Pressious is the largest graphic design and offset printing company in Greece, maintaining a list of over 800 businesses as active clients across Europe. Pressious is awarded for innovative printing products and designs (Environmental Awards 2013, Packaging Innovation Awards 2017). The National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA) is the largest University in Greece having 2,000 permanent faculty members and 40,000 undergraduate students.
For the purposes of this sub-project, NKUA will capitalize experience in several, relevant FP7 and H2020 projects to support Pressious on integration of EFPF components in the manufacturing site, as well as on the execution of testing and validation phase of the sub-project.
The sub-project fits in validation category, employing 6 tools, including 2 from Data Spine. EFPF comprises an opportunity for Pressious to establish Industry 4.0 principles, including proactive resource management, environmental footprint minimization and production chain digitization by exploiting available datasets across the production chain. The output of this sub-project will be a thorough testing and validation of these tools and the potential adoption of EFPF platform after the project lifetime.
The adaptation of the EFPF tools may result in:
Significant marginal cost per unit reduction accomplished by minimizing the number of defected products.
Production enhancement, which may be accomplished by minimizing the machinery idle time and environmental footprint minimization, by reducing the raw materials needed.
These targets have been quantified and are reflected in the relevant KPIs that have already been defined. These KPIs are described in detail below.
Furthermore, the consortium aims at gaining expertise with open – source tools employed in the EFPF
Apart from that, we aim at exploring the possibility of adapting the EFPF tools after the end of the project, thus moving towards the avoidance of vendor lock–in
More information about the sub-project will be made availabel in due course.
