The project FoFdation (Foundation for the Factory of the Future) aims at  a ‘Smart Factory’ architecture and implementation which holds tremendous potential in achieving huge benefits in earlier visibility of manufacturing issues, faster production ramp-up time, faster time-to-volume production and subsequently shorter time-to-market, reduced manufacturing costs and improved product quality as well as sustainability objectives like reduced energy consumption and waste reduction. These main benefits will be achieved by the five main objectives that will commonly interconnect and lead to the architecture of the ‘Factory of the Future’. In short, the envisioned ‘Digital Manufacturing Foundation’ extends existing information processing systems by adding more information about product data, tool machines, tools and processes and also process monitoring information feed back to shop-floor information systems to improve.
