FACT stands for Future Automation Control Technology

Project Description - The project will build a test-cell to demonstrate the next generation of automation techniques, which will be used in the car industry. This will encourage manufacturers to adopt new equipment and methods, rather than sticking with present production methods.

The project falls into two parts, the first of which is shop floor control, and the second being higher level systems, involving integration with supply chains and e-manufacture.

The project partners include Rockwell Automation primarily, with Pilz supporting safety systems.
