  • Pioneer – open Innovation Platform for optimizing production systems

    EU-Project / Project start / January 01, 2023

    PIONEER aims to develop and implement an interoperable material modeling and manufacturing ecosystem that enables multi-directional data flow along the material value chain by linking product design and distributed modeling data with information from material characterization, manufacturing processes, and product quality criteria. PIONEER combines a design-by-simulation approach with manufacturing and quality data to optimize product development strategies in high-mix/low-volume production systems.

    BMBF-project / Project start / June 01, 2019

    The inhalative route is an important path for nanomaterials and other innovative materials in the nano- and microscale range. The lung is therefore an important target organ for acute toxic effects. At the same time, the barrier function of the lung determines the systemic uptake of the materials and the resulting effects on other organs. The aim of this project is to develop an innovative testing system for airborne nanomaterials based on the partners' existing know-how in the field of in vitro testing procedures. The project is funded within the scope of the topic Nano Safety Research: "NanoCare4.0 - Application-safe Material Innovations".

    Missing software standards in virtual engineering workflows cause huge additional costs at manufacturing companies. Incompatible interfaces for the transfer of virtual material information require complex manual adaptation work, lead to inflexible technical solutions, create loss of information, and finally raise large time delays in the overall design process. The VMAP project has created new concepts for a universal material exchange interface for virtual engineering workflows. These concepts has been concretized in an open software standard. that has been implemented in a number of software tools. The benefits of integrated material handling have been demonstrated by six industrial use cases from different manufacturing domains and industry segments. For the further development and the assurance and maintenance of the VMAP library standard, the VMAP Standards Community (VMAP SC) has been established. It is open to any interested party that wants to use or contribute to the standardization efforts. Specification documents and directly related software components of the VMAP Standard are available to any interested party – VMAP SC members as well as external institutions – on a royalty-free basis.
