Industry 4.0

Imagine what Industry can be in the Future. CentraleSupélec and Ecole Normale Supérieure de Paris Saclay will showcase disruptive Industry 4.0 technologies (automated production lines, operations 4.0, additive manufacturing, collaborative robots) and let you imagine how todays industrial companies must manage their transformations.

Throughout the programme students will participate in a team-based competition testing their skills in the various topics addressed by the school.

Summer School programme description

Introductory Remarks (Bernard Yannou & Christophe Tournier)

Professor Bernard Yannou and Professor Christophe Tournier will be welcoming the school’s participants and present the University Paris-Saclay and some research departments working on Industry4.0. They will then introduce the summer school’s programme, provide an overview of the reading material and announce to the students the topic of the summer school challenge.

Understanding production management systems by serious gaming (Ludovic-Alexandre Vidal)
Understanding Industry 4.0 stakes requires to understand the basics of production management systems. This is what Ludovic-Alexandre Vidal aims to do in using Lego serious games. Attendants will design two car assembly lines and produce colored car Lego structures with customized options. Two conventional production management methods will be used, MRP and Kanban to simulate the production process. But, just like in real life, some defects and incidents can occur. This two-hour experience will teach the students the basics of production performances.

Introduction to Machine Learning (Richard Combes)

This course presents the fundamentals of statistical learning theory, from fundamental limits, to algorithms, their analysis and practical implementation. Important concepts such as Vapnik-Chervonenkis theory, Empirical Risk Minimization, Stochastic Gradient Descent algorithms and Kernel methods will be presented in details. A lab session will enable students to apply the theoretical contents to data.

Introduction to Industry 4.0 (Julie Le Cardinal)

After a general and historical presentation of the industry of the future, its objectives and challenges, Professor Le cardinal will provide an overview of CentraleSupélec teaching and research activities.Next, the students will be accompanied in a quick of the Factory (support of student projects) and of some research departments working on Industry 4.0 technologies.

Visit of the BCG Innovation Center for Operations
The attendants will walk through two production lines equipped with Industry 4.0 disruptive technologies. Students will have the chance to see collaborative robots, intelligent automated guided vehicles, augmented reality facilities for operators, real-time energy monitoring of machines, real-time control of assembly conformity, and many other new and flexible production facilities that are used in smarter manufacturing systems.

is 1000 square meters learning factory developed by the BCG (Boston Consulting Group) to demonstrate the abilities of Industry 4.0 technologies to disrupt the production management systems of companies.

Automotive Industry and Industry 4 .0 (Marc Alochet)

The automotive industry is facing a revolution with the simultaneous introduction of electric, connected, autonomous and shared vehicles as well as the emergence of a new e-mobility paradigm. After a global insight of the challenges of the automotive industry along with the main expectations and opportunities of Industry 4.0, the lecture proposes an interactive and critical review of some Industry 4.0 initiatives in the automotive industry. We will ask ourselves how relevant and efficient the Industry 4.0 initiatives are to tackle automotive industry challenges.

Production Systems of the past and of the future : Paradigm shift and concepts (Alain Patchong)

We will review the evolution of production systems over years, from the first revolution’s Spinning Jenny to today’s Industry 4.0 transformation, in the quest of the factory of the future. The last part of the seminar will focus on some key factors that frame the factory of the future, the promises and the challenges related to the implementation of Industry 4.0.

The Factory Lab Industry 4.0 technology incubator (Frédéric Amblard)

Factory Lab is a dynamic and successful innovation cluster for boosting the development and deployment of Industry 4.0 technologies in French industries. Frédéric Amblard will explain why some companies have troubles in developing and deploying Industry 4.0 powerful and efficient technologies. Then, he will showcase the Factory Lab concept for industrial companies so that they would cooperate in the development of Industry 4.0 Proofs of Concept that can be beneficial for the French Industry.

Additive manufacturing by laser bed melting (Christophe Tournier)
Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a technological revolution in the design and manufacture of components and industrial systems. After a presentation of the process and simulation activities, the participants will be led to enter the additive manufacturing cell to observe the process of production and discover the safety constraints of metal powder-based processes.

The human dimension of the Industry 4.0 (Guest Speaker: Mark Dean)

The future of work and society is being shaped significantly by the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0), but it is commonly envisioned in only its technological dimensions which can lead to technological fixes to the complex social challenges produced by processes of industrial transformation. Quite often, the social, cultural and environmental implications of Industry 4.0 have featured only as minor considerations in research and in policymaking processes.

In this lecture, the human dimensions of the fourth industrial revolution will be contextualised. The lecture will explore the interconnection between social, political and economic perspectives on Industry 4.0 to consider the role of several important stakeholders: industry, workers, government, education, and consider how their combination in social partnerships can help to imagine, shape and implement the fourth industrial revolution as a collaborative process that is environmentally sustainable and socially enriching.

Contactless scanning and point cloud processing (Claire Lartigue)

The conference will focus on non-contact in-line or off-line measurement techniques and will be followed by experimental measurements using optical 3D scanners and sensors, and software processing of point clouds to ensure their quality and usability in the digital factory.

Performance of robots and models for digital twin (Sylvain Lavernhe & Olivier Bruneau)
Despite certain advantages such as speed of execution, accessibility and manipulability, industrial robots exhibit structural defects resulting in inaccurate positioning due to geometrical manufacturing errors, elastic deformations (parts, joints) under kinematic and dynamic loads.

Within the context of smart manufacturing, which calls for an integrated production line solution with short cycle times and compatible with automated production, methods of modelling, identification and control will be proposed to improve the performance of robots and collaborative robots.

The practical objective is experimenting several trajectories on a 6-axis robot from Universal Robot and compare them to simulations from a model to build, based on the rigid multibody theory, in order to predict actuators torques.
