5GEM - 5G-Enabled Manufacturing

The 5G-Enabled Manufacturing (5GEM) project will create a pilot production system for world- class industrial manufacturing based on wireless and mobile 5G-communication. Fifth generation wireless communication technologies offer new means for Swedish industry to achieve radically increased manufacturing productivity, flexibility, and competitiveness. The project will provide demonstrators for manufacturing system design, deployment, operation and maintenance which are the key life-cycle phases for competitive and sustainable manufacturing.

he project is organised in four main Work Packages (WP), where each WP is aimed at creating a pilot implementation that demonstrates the use of advanced and mobile communication. Each WP has a set of tasks including specific requirements, technical development, implementation, test, and evaluation. Each pilot is tested with respect to increase of e.g. system performance, product quality, manufacturing flexibility, and workplace efficiency and attractiveness. The project will evolve and involve additional partners. The list of partners for each work package is only preliminary.
