Ubiquitous and Integrated Teamwork Environment
P5 IST-2000-25436 UNITE, “Ubiquitous and Integrated Teamwork Environment” (2000-2002) UNITE has produced research and development on co-operative workplaces and their creation from a unified co-operation platform. This platform is the key system component which provides the facilities for devices, components, and networks to fully interact, despite the possible original inherent heterogeneity, and which takes care that a uniform and ubiquitous view is presented to all team members regardless of their physical location. UNITE has addressed systems requirements and architecture for seamless integration of virtual and physical workplaces. UNITE has built on technology convergence among communication and collaboration media as well as different network technologies. It has exploited the ability of appliances to notify their existence and characteristics to the workplace environment. More information at the European Commission website here.

Advanced IT Infrastructure for Accurate Response in the Extended Enterprise
P4 ESPRIT 22038 AITEAR, “Advanced IT Infrastructure for Acurate Response in the Extended Enterprise” (1996-1998) The objectives of this project are: o Specify and build up a prototype of an advanced information technology infrastructure that will support Quick and Accurate Response in consumable goods manufacturing industries; o Develop an Accurate Response (AR) manufacturing model; o Promote the benefits of adopting AR solutions among industry; o Devise ways of using information and communication technologies to improve manufacturing business performance by providing an enhanced and proactive response to customer demands; o Encourage and exploit the project results through running several workshops where benefits of adopting AR solutions may be presented; o Generate specific recommendations to decrease the overall cycle from about 66 weeks to about 40 in the textile-clothing chain. Textile and garment are key sectors to the European economy, presenting some desired characteristics for this project, namely high diversity of seasonal products with a short life cycle. Those sectors have been facing huge competitive pressures from non-European countries. These are already eroding the European manufacturers’ market share and ultimately may reduce the consumers’ base. Our proposal firmly sustains that the adoption of AR solutions by partnerships involving textile manufacturers, garment manufacturers and retailers has an important role in the answer that can be provided to face this competition. AR can even support pro-active strategies to beat competitors in their local markets, and to take advantage of export opportunities presented by an increasing world population. AR, an evolution of the Quick Response concept, is an important competitive strategy in an environment where business relations develop at a global dimension. It enables to consider the various competitive dimensions that go beyond time with a particular emphasis on the re-evaluation of business processe...

“Improved COMmunication and Visualization in the PLAStic Mould Industry, Plataforma de Comunicação e de Visualização para a Indústria dos Moldes Plásticos”
ICPME ICOMPLAS – “Improved COMmunication and Visualization in the PLAStic Mould Industry, Plataforma de Comunicação e de Visualização para a Indústria dos Moldes Plásticos” (1999-2001) Projeto nacional da iniciativa ICPME (Comparticipado pela U.E. com Fundos do F.E.D.E.R.) ligado a uma iniciativa Internacional homónima EUREKA No. 2073, cujo consórcio foi o seguinte: um Centro de Investigação de Lisboa (ADETTI), um fabricante da Marinha Grande (TECNIMOPLAS – Indústria Técnica de Moldes, Lda), uma agência de design industrial e uma instituição de I&D da Holanda (EDC, European Design Center) e uma universidade Espanhola (UIB, Universidade das Ilhas Baleares). O projeto ICOMPLAS identificou requisitos do utilizador e desenvolveu soluções, nomeadamente: Requisitos associados à análise e avaliação da cooperação ao nível do negócio. Requisitos para a melhoria da interação nas parcerias. Requisitos para capturar os erros que surgem durante a troca de dados do produto. A necessidade de simplificar a complexidade inerente ao processo e de reduzir o número de ciclos iterativos de correção de especificação/projeto, visando obter melhor qualidade no produto final. O ICOMPLAS desenvolveu uma aplicação telemática que oferece a funcionalidade, o nível de pormenor e a precisão necessárias para preencher os requisitos da indústria. Paralelamente foi também efetuada uma caracterização das práticas cooperação no sector, assim como a apresentação duma metodologia e respetivo apoio informático, para permitir o desenvolvimento, coordenação e avaliação de parcerias. Os resultados obtidos pelo consórcio, foram atingidos de acordo com o planeado. As opiniões recolhidas dos diversos intervenientes nesta indústria têm sido positivas, sendo as expectativas quanto à aplicação dos resultados obtidos neste projeto muito animadoras. ADETTI was the coordinator of this project.

AAL4ALL – Ambient Assisted Living for All
Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) is a new approach to the challenges related with population aging and has as its main goals applying ambient intelligent technologies in supporting and training people with specific requirements (such as giving to elderly with memory loss products/services that help them reminding events or paths), and in developing safe environments to the maintenance of an independent life, promoting the active aging. Many national and international actions in the scope of AAL, more or less articulated, have been done, exploring several approaches to the development of innovative technologies. However, in general, we do not have a global understanding that determine and guide the Investigation & Development in AAL. In this context, the AAL4ALL project aims to develop a platform for the aggregation of products / services that promote the creation of assisted living environments, presenting an answer through the development of products and services ecosystem for AAL associated with a business model and validated by a large-scale pilot test.
