Artificial Intelligence supported Tool Chain in Manufacturing Engineering

Project vision

Development of an integrated tool-chain for manufacturing engineering that supports decision making in early phases

AIToC is an ITEA project with the goal to develop an integrated toolchain for manufacturing engineering that supports decision-making from a very early phase on.

Modern approaches for manufacturing engineering rely heavily on software tools for planning, simulation, and automation. While these tools are highly sophisticated in their area of application, interoperability is a problem due to missing standards and incompatibilities between tools, methods, and formats. Engineering software tools therefore must be adapted to each company’s needs, with great effort, as the number of variants and combinations in which a production system can be built is huge. The AIToC scope and approach include the development of existing or new tools for requirements definition and management, generation of process plans, generation of equipment models, and layout generation.

Virtual Preparation

By combining state of the art digital manufacturing tools with recent advances in formal methods, reliable control systems can be developed in parallel with simulation models of production systems.
