FAKTA - Flexible Automation of Kitting Transport and Assembly
Research Project , 2019 – 2022

Increased knowledge is needed about efficient design and control of automation in food management systems. FACTS aims to
support the design and control of high performance automated material handling systems with high flexibility. This helps
Swedish industry to reach the improvement potential that automation enables. Kitting and transport are emphasized, but the interfaces against
bearings and assembly are also very important parts of the project. FACTS mainly contribute to the goals of support
resource efficient and competitive production. The project supports economic, social, and environmental sustainability.
The project consortium includes a comprehensive collection of parties, including vendors and users of automated solutions,
as well as two academic parties with complementary skills. FACTS is based mainly on empirical studies and
includes 6 work packages that together help achieve the project's purpose.
