<strong>T-minus digital Data automation in the European space launch industry</strong>

24 février 2023

SESAME, or ‘Smart European Space Access through Modern Exploitation of data science’, was a three-year research project, funded by the EU and conducted by 8 partner organisations. It aimed to demonstrate European space companies working together and reducing costs by using data science for predictive quality, predictive maintenance, and operational planning optimisation. As the project […]

Energy-Aware Model Predictive Control of Assembly Lines.

Energy-Aware Model Predictive Control of Assembly Lines.
28 juin 2022

This paper presents a model predictive approach to the energy-aware control of tasks’ execution in an assembly line. The proposed algorithm takes into account both the need for optimizing the assembly line operations (in terms of the minimization of the total cycle time) and that of optimizing the energy consumption deriving from the operations, by […]

Optimal Control of Industrial Assembly Lines

25 novembre 2021

This paper discusses the problem of assembly line control and introduces an optimal control formulation that can be used to improve the performance of the assembly line, in terms of cycle time minimization, resources’ utilization, etc. A deterministic formulation of the problem is introduced, based on mixed-integer linear programming. A simple numerical simulation provides a […]
