The prefabricated house construction industry has great potential for Industry 4.0 measures. This is why the Linz Center of Mechatronics GmbH is involved in a Wood K plus project together with the company partners Elk Fertighaus, Holz-Hahn, Synthesa Chemie, Saint-Gobain Rigips Austria and the scientific partner, Institute for Production Economics and Logistics at the BOKU Vienna to take a more closely look to this branch of industry.
By means of an actual analysis, the experts will derive digitization measures that are sensible and efficient to implement. The Linz Center of Mechatronics GmbH will contribute its know-how in the field of technical implementation and optimization of sensors and actuators for Industry 4.0 applications.
In concrete terms, this means that the project will model the basics for suitable digital components and systems. The aim behind this is to increase process and quality assurance in prefabricated house production.The effects of the newly created foundations in the actual production are estimated by means of simulation in order to implement sustainable digitization, networking in the Internet of things and IT-supported control of prefabricated house production.
