CALL FOR PARTICIPATION –MACH FAB 4.0 POOLED PROJECTS INITIATIVE
In collaboration with the CEFRIO, today we are launching two pooled projects as part of the MACH FAB 4.0 Initiative. Note that a third project, “Community of interest in cobotics,” will be launched soon.
These projects are reserved for industrial SMEs that work in the aerospace sector and carry out manufacturing activities in Québec.
The two projects, which aim to produce a customized deliverable to the company for the selection of a solution, are as follows:
- Project 1 – “Work instruction” solution to digitize work instructions, facilitate consultation and/or modification.
- Project 2 – “MES” solution to support, measure, visualize and communicate the state of execution of orders on the shop floor
If you are interested in any of these projects, please contact Geneviève Lefebvre at the CEFRIO (genevieve.Lefebvre@cefrio.qc.ca or 514-840-1245 extension 224) by September 21, 2018. Note that there is a limit of 5 companies per group.
