Project of Flexible automation is a project of transfer of knowledge and solutions among partners in the field of flexible automation. It is based on skills and experience, transfer of educational programs necessary for the upgrading of a flexible production cell.
Its aim is training of teachers, trainers of practical lessons in schools and employees in companies. The extent of knowledge transfer is demanding, that is the reason why the project has got planned partners and planned tasks in the ctonsortium. The basic direction of innovation transfer is from Austria and Slovenia to other countries – Croatia and Turkey.
Regional close partnership is necessary and supported by skills and technological equipment of cooperating countries and partners in the project. It is necessary to adapt the knowledge in schools, educational institutions with the needs of industry and this project tries to minimize this gap.
Solutions found in previous common programs are ready to be transferred. Useful innovations in the field of knowing the flexible cell has already been confirmed on the market. It brings us new higher applicability in the sense of higher quality, reducing costs, rising the companies reputation, limiting competitiveness etc. it is the result of development and research work which demands a whole business approach from the idea, applicative research and development of production. These facts allow us to transfer the gained knowledge and experience. It is a fact that skills transfer always brings us broadening our common knowledge and good knowledge transfer among target groups. It will also support small and medium-sized companies producing and manufacturing metal, and cooperation between educational institutions and industry.
Cooperation will enable a common educational program for teachers, trainers, employees in companies and a common realization of the program. Already construed flexible production cells (CNC machine with robot and communication) are the fundament for the practical realization of the program, demonstration and product tests, simulation, optimization of innovative products for the knowledge transfer to the companies. We will build a permanent knowledge transfer among schools and between schools and companies.
In the project we would like to train employees by knowledge required from the companies where flexible cells are necessary. Only they are able to adapt to new products and enable the necessary quality of production.
Target groups of the project are teachers, trainers, professionals in educational companies, employees in SMEs who would like to gain modern skills and methods on production technologies and companies manufacturing metal and artificial materials.
