Led by Professor Dimitrios Georgakopoulos, this research program focuses on the rapidly changing demands of customers. We work with Australian manufacturers in top-producing export sectors (such as food, high tech and defence) as well as state and federal governments and the Internet of Things Alliance Australia (IoTAA) in the fields of:
We work with these partners to establish a “smart factory” forum that will:
help define and maintain standard, open, industry-specific interfaces for developing and using Industry 4.0 solutions
support developing, testing and offering new Industry 4.0 solutions with less effort and cost
allow the industry to share Industry 4.0 experiences and lessons learned.
Projects within this program aim to substantially increase engagement with Australian manufacturers in the development and delivery of Industry 4.0 solutions, and will ultimately positively impact productivity, safety, product quality and manufacturing agility.
