In order to guarantee the achievement of 4D objectives and to efficiently manage related project complexity, a coherent work plan, over 3 years, has been developed.
It is organized in 10 work packages clustered in Project Management, Scientific and Technical, Demonstration and Dissemination and Exploitation activities. Particularly, the RTD activities will map the 4D solution development lifecycle from the product and technologies design phases to processes and equipment design phases through to the data acquisition, control, integration and optimization phases. Use cases provided by the end-users give requirements for every design process related to the hybrid processes, the 4D mechatronic modules and hybrid solutions. Once the complete design and development stage will be developed, the actual outcome of the manufacturing processes, i.e. the aerospace, oil&gas and power generation products will be evaluated against the reference benchmarks.
