Project Summary
The major goal of the pre-study is to identify and prepare the required information, challenges and needs that Indian and Swedish industry
(within pharmaceutical and biotechnology, and networking and telecommunications, knowledge) have, and tools, modules, and technologies that are
demanded for a project to develop a tool for integrating production-maintenance-and- economy within Smart Manufacturing.

The project is initiated in the spirit of the collaboration between Sweden and India and funded by Vinnova and the industrial partners.

The project aims to develop a conceptual model describing a smart sustainable integrated production-maintenance (Smart-Pro) system for manufacturing
and JIT production, for effective production planning, scheduling, follow up and decision making.

For supporting Smart-Pro system, the conceptual model will also describe a Plug-and-Play solution for automatic detection-localizing of damages, severity
estimation, predicting damage development, recommending what, where and when to act cost-effectively to maintain production process continuity and quality.

The consortium consists of; three Universities from the Swedish academia (Linnaeus university, Uppsala University and Stockholm University) and from
Swedish industry (E-maintenance Sweden AB), and a couple of Swedish companies Astra Zeneca and Ericsson within pharmaceutical and
biotechnology, and networking and telecommunications, respectively, with their Indians factories.
