Task description:

Sub-Project Types

The open call supports three types of sub-projects: Develop, Integrate, and Validate as described below. The available ZDMP Components and related information is available on the ZDMP website.

1. Sub-projects for the development of digital manufacturing components and services for the ZDMP platform

Sub-projects that develop new components or solutions that can be integrated into the ZDMP platform, or which combine/extend the functionalities of existing ZDMP components. In this type of sub-project the focus is on:

  • Developing new Design-time / Run-time zero-defect smart manufacturing components that can be integrated with the ZDMP Platform and/or Marketplace (must be substantially different from those developed within the ZDMP project)
  • Developing new AI/Machine Learning solutions and new algorithms for zero-defect smart manufacturing processes (must be different from those developed within the ZDMP project)
  • Development/Extension of existing ZDMP platform and/or components in order to provide added value to the platform and/or to reach new Industry4.0 domains (outside of ZDMP pilot domains – Automotive/Electronics/Machine Tools/Construction)

Aim: To create new components for the enhancement of the ZDMP platform, to provide new services to Industry4.0 and to give the opportunity to sub-project participants to build high quality components by leveraging existing functionalities and capabilities of the ZDMP platform.
Target Audience: SME technology providers, software developers, and start-up developers
Bid type: Either a) Single SME Applicants or b) Small Consortia of a maximum of two partners led by an SME. In the case of (b) the consortium must consist of either another SME or an academic/research partner or large organisation. Academic/research partners and large organisations must be in a clear supporting role only (eg. an SME manufacturing/supply chain company (lead) and a large technology provider; or an SME technology company (lead) and a large manufacturer).
Funding Amount: €50 000-150 000
Sub-project Duration: 9 months (fixed duration)
Technical Note: All new and/or extended components will need to be ZDMP platform compliant and able to connect with ZDMP Core Components (Portal, Marketplace, Service & Message Bus, Application Runtime, AI-Analytics Runtime, Storage; and Secure Installation, Communication & Authentication)

2. Sub-projects to improve the ZDMP ecosystem by connecting multiple stakeholders

Focus on the:

  • Integration of existing 3rd Party zero-defect smart manufacturing Design-time and Run-time components / services with the ZDMP Platform
  • Integration/Interoperability of third-party platforms, including SMEs/Manufacturers with micro platforms, with the ZDMP platform
  • Integration of existing ZDMP components with third party processes / components / tools / services in new manufacturing domains/scenarios

Aim: To extend ZDMP platform functionality by integrating with existing components, services, or platforms.
Target Audience: SME technology providers / software developers, and/or companies of any size from either the manufacturing or supply chain domains that provide platforms or solutions that can be integrated with the ZDMP platform or who can integrate ZDMP components into existing services.
Bid type: Either a) Single SME Applicants or b) Small Consortia of a maximum of two partners led by an SME. In the case of (b) the consortium must consist of either another SME or an academic/research partner or large organisation. Academic/research partners and large organisations must be in a clear supporting role only (eg. an SME manufacturing/supply chain company (lead) and a large technology provider; or an SME technology company (lead) and a large manufacturer).
Funding Amount: €50 000 to €150 000
Sub-project Duration: 9 months (fixed duration)
Technical Note: the integration of components and 3rd Party platforms must use the ZDMP API Gateway

3. Sub-projects for validation and/or testing of ZDMP platform and components in digital manufacturing domains

Typically, validation/testing experiments will involve several components (which may include the platform itself)

Focus on:

1. Validation

  • Functional validation of ZDMP components InCloud and/or OnPremise – e.g. workflows, UI, integration with other ZDMP components, algorithms, data acquisition
  • Scenario Validation: Deploy and run ZDMP components in a range of smart manufacturing domains/scenarios – e.g. ‘real-world’ validation using real-world data, security
  • Technical Validation of ZDMP platform and components – e.g. Message Bus, API Gateway, SSO, marketplace, etc.

2. Testing

  • Performance Testing of ZDMP components in a range of smart manufacturing domains/scenarios – e.g. AI model prediction & result testing, security, data acquisition & ingestion
  • Usability Testing of ZDMP components InCloud and/or OnPremise – e.g. certificate integration

Aim: To test and validate ZDMP platform and components in additional use cases / domains / environments (Cloud vs Premises) in order to ensure the quality of ZDMP offerings to the broader community of end-users.
Target Audience: SME technology providers or software developers and/or companies of any size from either the manufacturing or supply chain domains.
Bid type: Either a) Single SME Applicants or b) Small Consortia of a maximum of two partners led by an SME. In the case of (b) the consortium must consist of either another SME or an academic/research partner or large organisation. Academic/research partners and large organisations must be in a clear supporting role only (e.g. an SME manufacturing/supply chain company (lead) and a large technology provider; or an SME technology company (lead) and a large manufacturer).
Funding Amount: €50 000 to €150 000
Sub-project Duration: 9 months (fixed duration)
Technical Note: ZDMP provides an Experimentation Facility which can be used by sub-projects for validation and testing purposes or which can provide a range of datasets for sub-projects to use.
