WP 1 – Management and Coordination
The objective of WP1 is the smooth implementation of the project through appropriate mechanisms for management and coordination of other work packages and activities. It will address project infrastructure (committees, boards, quality plan, procedures, risk, registers, project management tools, internal web site, etc.) and financial and contractual management of the consortium, including maintenance of the Consortium Agreement, follow-up of contractual obligations (contractual reporting, deliverable issuing, monitoring of resources, communications with the Commission, etc.).
The scientific coordination of the project is not included in this WP. This WP only covers financial and administrative management/coordination activities. In accordance with article II.16 of the grant agreement, the efforts and costs related to the scientific coordination of the project are not included in this WP and will not be reported as management, but as RTD activities.
WP 2 – People-Centred Factory Requirements Analysis
The objective of WP2 is the elicitation and analysis of requirements for the technologies to be developed, with respect to particular use cases. The use cases will demonstrate the applicability of the technologies with respect to 2 areas: “process automation”, and “empowering workers in assembly lines”.
WP 3 – Development of Extensions of Subject-Orientation
The objective of WP3 is the development of methods and tools related to the 3 areas in which subject-orientation needs to be extended: (1) increasing the coverage of subject-oriented workplace models to include machines and context, (2) specialising the subject-oriented approach to analysis and improvement of workplaces for the production domain, and (3) providing semi-automated support for reconciling subject-oriented workplace models.
In addition, WP3 will develop and test the foundations for a seamless integration of production and business processes, as stated in Objective 3.
WP 4 – Case Study Implementation “Process Automation”
The objective of WP4 is the organisational and technical implementation and use of the technologies developed in WP3, within the use cases defined in WP2.
A use case called “Process Automation” will be implemented at TC Contact according to the definitions and
specifications produced in WP2. It will include all the developed tools and methods of SO-PC-Pro. Factory-level
tool installation equals in both companies.
WP 5 – Case Study Implementation “Empowered Workplace
The objective of WP5 is the organisational and technical implementation and use of the technologies developed in WP3, within the use cases defined in WP2.
A use case called “Empowered Workplace Improvement” will be implemented at Fimap according to the definitions and specifications produced in WP2. It will include all the developed tools and methods of SO-PC-Pro.
WP 6 – Case Study Implementation “Mexico”
The objective of WP6 is the organisational and technical implementation and use of the technologies developed in WP3, within the use cases defined in WP2. A use case called “Mexico” will be implemented at BIMBO according to the definitions and specifications produced in WP2.
WP 7 – Formative and Case Study Evaluations
The objective of WP7 is the development of an evaluation framework providing data collection methods and tools and analysis methods for the formative as well as summative evaluations. The formative evaluation provides ongoing feedback for the development in WP3 of the SO-PC-Pro methods and tools (sensors and software components) to ensure the wearability and usability of the system.
The summative evaluation is based on the evaluation framework in line with the two case studies in WP4 and WP5 evaluating the SO-PC-Pro system to verify the objectives of the project.
The privacy of all workers will be respected at any time, and all data will be protected and anonymised. The data protection officers of the facilities involved will be informed to ensure that all requirements are met, and they will approve the data collection procedures.
WP 8 – Dissemination and Exploitation
The objective of WP8 is the management and effective use of the results of the project, in terms of dissemination and exploitation. In detail, it aims at:
• Creating awareness about the SO-PC-Pro project as well as about its objectives, progress and results within
the targeted industrial sector and the scientific community
• Ensuring and promoting the exploitation of the results by production companies and by new potential end users
• Managing the acquired knowledge, competencies and outcomes to facilitate exploitation by potential end-users
