Manufacturing Settings - Intermediate Results
The CO-VERSATILE project aims at increasing the adaptation capacity, resilience and flexibility of the European manufacturing sector, focusing on vital medical supplies and equipment, to support Europe in improving its response and preparedness to deal with pandemics. CO-VERSATILE aims to demonstrate how existing technologies and results of previous European projects can be customised, adapted and reused in order to deliver flexible 48-hour industrial response capability at scale. The delivery of such response capacity is demonstrated on seven Manufacturing Settings implemented within the project. These anufacturing Settings target to produce a wide range of vital medical supplies, including face masks, respiratory devices and disinfectant spray systems.
CO-VERSATILE implements its Manufacturing Settings based on a highly agile approach. The implementation is performed in six iterative cycles, each including build, measure and learn phases (Build-Measure-Learn = B-M-L). As we are currently at month 12 of the project duration, this deliverable presents the technical activities and results of the first year of the project.
Each Manufacturing Setting is introduced first, presenting the setting focus, objectives, and methodology. Then, the main technical activities performed so far in the project are detailed, highlighting the targets, the methodology and the tools utilized to execute them. The main results and their impact on the manufacturing setting development are discussed, in order to provide a clear picture of the status of the project evolution towards the final objectives in each of the settings. This is achieved also through a visualization of the main results and lessons learned at the end of each B-M-L cycle, which provide an overview of the progress of the activities in each setting. In parallel, the work plan and objectives for the next B-M-L cycles are proposed and discussed.
