SMARTER-SI – Smarter Access to Manufacturing for Systems Integration
The ultimate goal of SMARTER-SI was to test a new concept for small lot production, the so-called Cooperative Foundry Concept. During previous research, all involved RTOs have built components as parts of systems, i.e. building blocks, which are available and characterised by their high Technology Readiness Level (TRL). By combining these building blocks in so-called Application Experiments (AEs) innovative Smart Systems which serve SMEs’ needs are created.
