AIT Participates in the H2020 QU4LITY Project (Contract No: 825030), which is European’s Commission lighthouse initiative for Zero Defect Manufacturing (ZDM) based on advanced digital technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, BigData and the Industrial Internet of Things.

In particular, QU4LITY will demonstrate, in a realistic, measurable, and replicable way an open, certifiable and highly standardised, SME friendly and transformative shared data-driven ZDM product and service model for Factory 4.0 through 5 strategic ZDM plug & control lighthouse equipment pilots and 9 production lighthouse facility pilots. QU4LITY will also demonstrate how European industry can build unique and highly tailored ZDM strategies and competitive advantages (significantly increase operational efficiency, scrap reduction, prescriptive quality management, energy efficiency, defect propagation avoidance and improved smart product customer experience, and foster new digital business models; e.g. outcome-based and product servitisation) through an orchestrated open platforms ecosystem, ZDM atomized components and digital enablers (Industry 4.0 digital connectivity & edge computing package, plug & control autonomous manufacturing equipment, real-time data spaces for process monitoring & adaptation, simulation data spaces for digital process twin continuity, AI-powered analytic data spaces for cognitive digital control twin composable services, augmented worker interventions, European quality data marketplace) across all phases of product and process lifecycle (engineering, planning, operation and production) building upon the QU4LITY autonomous quality model to meet the Industry 4.0 ZDM challenges.

AIT’s Principal Investigator in H2020 QU4LITY is Dr. John Soldatos, Head of IoT Group.
