End-to-end process management in high tech manufacturing – an introduction to the HORSE project
The HORSE project is a EU Horizon 2020 research and development project in the area of “factories of the future”. It aims to develop a framework for smart factories that increases efficiency and effectiveness of manufacturing processes by applying and extending process management technology and by integrating human and robotic activities on the workfloor while ensuring a safe and healthy work environment. In this presentation I will introduce the HORSE project, its goals, its applications, and the contribution of the TU/e HORSE team to the framework as a whole. I will report on the progress we have made so far in the requirements analysis, complete system design and development of manufacturing process management.
