Special applications for engineers

eApps are digital tools which enable consistent communication and an uninterrupted flow of information to take place on the shop floor. Fraunhofer IPA pursues this approach in its research project “Engineering Apps for advanced Manufacturing Engineering (Apps4aME)”.

In the project, eApps are developed to optimize route planning as well as plan and analyze temperatures in the food industry. The universal concept is simple to adapt for use in other areas of industry.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 314156.
