The PeneloPe Project
Closed-loop digital pipeline for a flexible and modular manufacturing of large components
PENELOPE aims to develop a novel closed-loop digital pipeline. An end-to-end Digital Manufacturing solution, enabling a bidirectional dataflow for seamless integration across the entire manufacturing value chain.
Closed-loop Penelope innovations will contribute to the following technical objectives to improve the efficiency (reduction of raw materials consumption, production cost and time) and precision in the manufacturing of large-scale parts.digital pipeline for a flexible and modular manufacturing of large components
Manufacturing and repairing of large-scale parts, usually one-of-a-kind components, is a complex and challenging process that requires the implementation of an integrated methodology capable of ensuring the manufacturability, quality and high-precision of the large-parts from the engineering stages –i.e. design, simulation/modelling and production planning—. Europe is leading the manufacturing of complex large-scale components with worldwide and top-class manufacturing companies (e.g. AIRBUS, FOKKER, MV WERFTEN, ENI, ALSTOM).
