Day one at RoboBusiness: Wednesday, October 15:
Check in for the afternoon (Noon to 4PM)
for the Advanced Manufacturing Workshop
From design to factory to consumer
The traditional manufacturing paradigm as we know it today, basically, sets of labor-intensive mechanical processes, is beginning to crack and give way to a newer manufacturing paradigm, specifically, sets of sophisticated information-technology-based processes.
This new manufacturing ecosystem, as it displaces traditional manufacturing, will be driven by automated processes that rely on sensors, robots, and condition-based systems that eliminate most needs for human intervention, while substituting data and information systems for oversight and improvement.
Robotics and advanced manufacturing
- What are the emerging technology trends in advanced manufacturing?
- Which of those technologies are converging and how?
- What are the chief enabling factors spurring emergence and convergence?
- How is robotics converging with advanced manufacturing?
- What are the leading scenarios advancing the ?Smart Factory??

AM 1: The Factory of the Future: Robots Move Beyond Automation to Optimization
This session will look at the market opportunity for robots that can use innovative combinations of hardware and software to ?see, feel and interpret? the environment and modify performance based on current conditions and future needs.
AM 2: Robotic Systems for Smart Manufacturing: Standards and Assessment
A competitive vision that proposes development of fully-integrated, collaborative manufacturing systems which respond in real time to meet changing demands and conditions in the factory, in the supply network, and in meeting customer needs.
AM 3: Collaborative Robots for Manufacturing: Use Cases and Ongoing Development
This panel, composed of technology experts, will answer questions from the manufacturing end user community about collaborative-class robots: the value proposition, human workforce integration, software and safety considerations as well as ongoing technology developments.
AM 4: EU Factory-in-a-Day Project
Factory-in-a-Day Project aims at improving the competitiveness of European manufacturing SMEs by removing the primary obstacle for robot automation; installation time and installation cost. The high costs result in payback periods, making the investment in robotized automation economically unattractive. Factory-in-a-Day will reduce the installation time (and the related cost) from months to one single day. EU Factory-in-a-Day Project 2014
