Work Structure

WP1_Ethics requirements

This work package sets out the ‘ethics requirements’ that the project must comply with.

WP2_Requirements and Conceptual Process Chain Design

The objectives of the WP are:

  1. Define, analyse and consolidate user requirements: Strategies, updated needs, performance and specs data.
  2. Update the State of the Art analysis and monitor patents and new technologies
  3. Elaborate overall architecture, IQONIC Strategies, component specs, process-chain
  4. Design in detail and develop the IQONIC use cases
  5. Monitor IQONIC Strategy implementation.

WP4_Data Management, Sensors, and Processes Design and Setup

The objectives of the WP are:

  1. To define the IQONIC sensorial network and introduce novel self-adjustment mechanisms through a suitable network management module
  2. To develop the in-line sensors of adaptive optics and electronic nose for evaluation of materials
  3. To employ the smart grasping system to adjust the handling process based on the design requirements
  4. To deploy a new middleware to realise semantic interconnection of sensors with the IQONIC core elements and existing information infrastructure.

WP6_Process and Artificial Intelligence Implementation

The objectives of the WP are:

  1. To develop models for predicting defects due to deterioration of machinery condition
  2. To develop multi-parametric models of product instances (at single stage)
  3. To build an autonomous, self-adjusted inference engine for real-time inspection and control at the shop-floor and decision support at single and multiple stage (manufacturing) level
  4. Interfacing with MES and other higher level management systems.

WP8_Use Case Demonstration and Assessment

The objectives of the WP are:

  1. Define methodological framework for IQONIC evaluation through extensive demonstration
  2. Demonstrate the TRL5 validated IQONIC at operational environment of 4 complex demonstrators
  3. Execute valuation Plan, collect demonstration data, synthesise results and draw conclusions
  4. Perform last system improvements based on demonstration and evaluation conclusions

WP3_Opto-Electrical System Design for Assembly and Disassembly Start month

The objectives of the WP are:

  1. Define, analyse and consolidate assembly processes and parameter data interfaces for active and passive components functionalities
  2. Derive requirements for component and system design data entry and output points to be used in assembly and disassembly
  3. Develop the data-driven assembly and disassembly pro-cess-chain model


WP5_Defect Life-Cycle Management, Dissassembly and Remanufacturing

The objectives of the WP are:

  1. To employ a defect management strategy for different defect types
  2. To analyse the severity of defects and provide decision support for their rework, reuse or recycling
  3. To deploy techniques for reuse or requalification of different defect types
  4. To develop a CPS with integrated software to categorise product
  5. To develop a DSS to host the reverse supply chain and closing the loop of photonics manufacturing.

WP7_Integration & Testing - Validation

The objectives of the WP are:

  1. Integrate all s/w components and h/w platforms of the IQONIC solution through a predefined integration methodology and schedule
  2. Define and execute technology validation plan at TRL5
  3. Validate the IQONIC solution at TRL6 through pilot demonstration (1st demonstration phase)
  4. Produce the initial validated TRL5 version of IQONIC for the extended 2nd phase demonstration
  5. Facilitate transferability and take-up of IQONIC through the production of a comprehensive White Paper


The objectives of the WP are:

  1. Develop dissemination assets; raise awareness through engagement in effective outreach activities
  2. Ensure widespread use of IQONIC within the manufacturing industries and target market segments; maximise exploitation opportunities for partners; establish Joint Venture; and seek for follow-up investments.
  3. Manage IQONIC innovation effectively and take appropriate actions to protect IPR knowledge.
