Dynamic (Capacity-oriented) production scheduling
Summary of the entity:
List institute, a digital systems expert. Based in Saclay (Paris region, France), List Institute is one of CEA Tech’s three technological research institutes constituting CEA technological Division. Dedicated to smart digital systems, our mission is to achieve technological development of excellence for our industrial partners and create value, with more than 200 industrial collaborations per year.
List institute counts more than 750 partners and every year more than 200 partnership activities are being conducted with French and foreign industrial companies on applied research projects in four main topics: Advanced Manufacturing, Embedded systems, Data intelligence, and Health ionizing radiations.
Summary of the challenge:
The goal is to help producers adapt their production dynamically to resource provisioning by providing the necessary information as soon as possible.
Description of the global challenge:
Stakeholders: Product producers
Description: Circular economy aims to reduce waste thanks to the use of recycled materials. However, the provisioning of those materials might experience variations over time. For this reason, producers have to be ready to adapt their production to the current availability of the input materials.
The earlier the producer has access to that information, the better. Hence, the need for an automatic and secure data information flow between the involved stakeholders in the supply chain production.
Data to be used:
As discussed above, there are currently no open datasets specifically designed to be exploited under the Circular Economy paradigm. Candidates interested in working on this Theme are therefore encouraged to propose their own combinations of datasets from the REACH catalogue, open data and/or from self-identified data providers.
To provide product producers with all the necessary information to adjust their production in a timely manner to not incur in extra costs while implementing a circular economy approach.
