I-RAMP³ – Intelligent Network Devices for fast Ramp-up

European project co-financed under the scope of Factories of the Future (NMP+ICT) of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission.The vision of I-RAMP³ is to enable the European manufacturing industry towards smart manufacturing systems in conventional production. The project aims at creating innovative solutions in order to improve the competitiveness for this important industry sector.I-RAMP³ aims at enabling the industry towards zero ramp-up time integration of additional capabilities in existing and new production networks. In order to realize this goal the project will target four specific objectives:

  • Plug&Produce devices, sensors and actors with built-in intelligence for fast exchange of components
  • Standardized communication and collaboration mechanisms in heterogeneous production environments
  • Intra- and inter-device optimization models for automated device configuration
  • Enhanced Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) for workflow optimization and production data assessment
