CROSS-TEC (www.cross-tec.enea.it)

Interoperability and virtualisation of processes in enterprises networks

Responsible: Giorgio Graditi

Scientific coordinator: Piero De Sabbata

The laboratory addresses the following research issues:

  • Technologies of interoperability and enterprises networks; semantic technologies and for the traceability of the supply chain; technologies and enabling standards for smart cities and communities (X-LAB)
  • Methodologies for cad/cam design and new production technologies (PROTO-LAB)
  • Characterisation of energetic components and IT applications for energy. New technologies for reducing energy consumption, optimizing production processes, analyzing and using new fuels, and biofuels, and systems for sustainable mobility.(LITE3R)
  • Applications in the HPC-Big Data field of interest to industry and Public Administration. (HPC-Lab)

The laboratory participates the activities of the ICT and Design Regional Technological Platform of Emilia-Romagna region.

The objectives

1. Interoperability technologies and enterprises networks (X-LAB)

  • Standards adoption methods and tools for machine-to-machine data exchange;
  • New business models enabled by IT (Smart energy grids, energy optimisation, smart manufacturinmg)
  • Tools and methods for data exchange standards adoption and interoperability assessment
  • Test Bed methods and tools for evaluation of interoperability and applications conformance to standard specifications;
  • "Test hall" open to the enterprises who want to check the interoperability of their own applications.

Expected impact toward enterprises:

  • Standards adoption/participation to standardization activity
  • Test and measure of the systems interoperability
  • Creation of a regional environment favourable to standard based eBusiness
  • Independent support (not another SW solution)

2. Cad/cam design methodologies and new production techniques (PROTO-LAB)

  • Development of CAD 3D modelling methodologies for the integration with automatic production, rapid modelling and "rapid manufacturing" systems
  • Development of CAD 3D design methodologies for high design content models through the integrated use of the modelling NURBS and SDS (SubDivisionSurface) for made in Italy products
  • Definition of potential implementations for generative modelling. Generative modelling integration with 3D design systems for "visual programming" applications and complex mathematic functions translation in three-dimensional models hardly realizable with normal CAD tools.
  • "Best practices" in collaboration with PMI and artisan laboratories finalized to research activities based on the application of cad/cam technologies and their integration with the traditional systems of production

Expected impact toward enterprises:

  • CAD/CAM technologies introduction with specific reference to 3D modelling, inverse engineering and rapid modelling inside micro-enterprises and artisan laboratories
  • Increase of enterprises competitiveness through the optimization of the design process, the time to market reduction and the increase of the collections design level

The history in short

Units today in CROSS-TEC have previously participated in the realization of the Center for the innovation CROSS (www.cross-lab.it) and following of the Regional Laboratory LISEA (www.lisealab.it).

Large part of the CROSS-TEC background consists therefore of two technological transfer laboratories (X-LAB and PROTOCENTER) operating in ENEA from more than 10 years.
