In cooperation with Continetal colleagues from Research Laboratory on Engineering & Management Intelligence have recently closed a successful simulation modeling workshop. Assisted by the laboratory, the project aimed at providing support for the design of a new production line by using simulation modeling.
The RobustPlaNet EU FP7 project, coordinated by Research Laboratory on Engineering & Management Intelligence, was closed by the final meeting held in Foligno 4th September 2016, and the following industrial workshop took place in Bologna.
Within the EXCELL EU H2020 project, colleagues of our laboratory actively collaborate with the Germany-based Fraunhofer FIT (Institute for Applied Information Technology) institute in the topics of machine learning and data analytics.
Our laboratory has a long-term and fruitful partnership with the Aventics (former Bosch Rexroth) company. The factory, located in Eger (Hungary), produces pneumatic components and systems. Within the partnership our laboratory provides support to the introduction and application of advanced decision making tools in the manufacturing and logistics areas of the company.
In cooperation with Festo-AM Gyártó Ltd, simulation expert colleagues of the laboratory participated several simulation-oriented projects, aimed at analysing the production systems of the company according to various criteria. In most cases the purpose of the analysis were the early-stage evaluation of the production and logistics systems’, simulating dynamic and real production environment based on the criteria provided by the engineers of Festo.
Since autumn 2015, our laboratory cooperates with Hoya Szemüveglencse Gyártó Magyarország Ltd. within the topics of simulation analysis and „Industry 4.0”. The primary goal of the project is to model different segments of the company’s plant in Mátészalka, according to different capacity planning and process improvement criteria. Within the developments and workshops of the cooperation, the engineers of Hoya picked up the basics of simulation modelling, enabling them to use this technology in the everyday practice.
Our laboratory pays special attention to provide an opportunity and a up-to-date environment for the representatives of the next generation so that they can gain industrial-like experience along their theoretical education. Thanks to our co-operation with the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, project tasks, scientific student research and theses are made with the supervision of our lab’s staff on our research infrastructure, which is constantly being developed together with the students.
The Industry 4.0 National Technology Platform has been recently established under the leadership of the Institute for Computer Science and Control, Hungarian Academy of Sciences and with the participation of research institutions, education institutions and companies having premises in Hungary.
The new, significantly improved version of Occopus has been released.
Occopus can be used by application developers and application controllers to manage virtual infrastructures at deployment time and at runtime as well as to create and provide complex virtual infrastructures to be built by one click even by novice cloud users.
On-site deployment of the smart energy-positive street lighting system called E+grid has been completed at the MTA campus at Csillebérc, Budapest. This state-of-the-art lighting system was developed with support of the Hungarian Government by a consortium led by General Electric Hungary , with the participation of MTA SZTAKI , MTA MFA and BME .
Robotic remote laser welding (RLW) has attracted interest specifically in the automotive industry due to its potential benefits in terms of processing speed, process flexibility and energy efficiency.
Contributing to the EU-funded RLW Navigator project, researchers of the Research Laboratory on Engineering & Management Intelligence developed a software toolbox that enables the detailed configuration, optimization, simulation and automated off-line programming of RLW workcells.
A research consortium of 8 European partners from industry (Airbus, Deimos Space), research establishments (DLR, MTA SZTAKI) and Universities (Bordeaux, Delft, Hull, Leicester) was established in July 2009 with funding from the European Union 7th Framework Program to address the challenge of the future sustainable aircraft: to be cleaner, quieter, smarter and more affordable.
