Enterprise Systems Engineering

At CESE, we use the knowledge generated in research to provide high value-added niche services to industrial enterprises in areas such as Manufacturing Systems Design, Manufacturing Systems Planning and Management, Collaborative Platforms, Supply Chain Strategy, Manufacturing Intelligence or Construction Information Management.

Our mission is to advance the scientific knowledge in enterprise systems engineering, fostering high impact management and ICT systems, and generating innovative services for industrial organisations.

We want to be recognised as a leading research centre in enterprise systems engineering and as a first choice in helping industrial organisations to achieve sustainable, high-performance levels.

Sustainable deliveries: researchers aim to support retailers in addressing environmental impact of online shopping

Online shopping and just-in-time delivery – or almost. We became familiarised with this scenario over the past few years, mainly because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The environmental impact of new retail strategies is not yet fully known, particularly regarding new business models and consumption habits, associated with e-commerce; this was the starting point of the e-LOG project, led by INESC TEC, which has now come to an end.

Researchers support the manufacturing industry by anticipating disruptions in supply chains

Over the next three years, a group of European researchers, including a team from INESC TEC, will work on the development of management models to support the manufacturing industry – namely small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs); the goal is to identify potential disruptions in current and future supply chains. This work will take place within the European RISE-SME project, focusing on four industrial ecosystems: Agro-food, Digital, Mobility and Transportation, and Textile.

Sustainable and Resilient Supply Chains: Researchers Develop New, People-centred Management Models

Over recent years, there have been several social, economic, and environmental changes leading to the transformation of supply chains. The European project ReSChape focuses on this exact question, analysing the impact of said changes and presenting strategies and management models to improve the supply chains' sustainability and resilience. The project also aims to ensure that people are at the centre of businesses.

D3S: Decision support system for sectorization

DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEMS

Abstract
Sectorization problems refer to dividing a large set, area or network into smaller parts concerning one or more objectives. A decision support system (DSS) is a relevant tool for solving these problems, improving optimisation procedures, and finding feasible solutions more efficiently. This paper presents a new web-based Decision Support System for Sectorization (D3S). D3S is designed to solve sectorization problems in various areas, such as school and health districting,planning sales territories and maintenance operations zones, or political districting. Due to its generic design, D3S bridges the gap between sectorization problems and a state-of-the-art decision support tool. The paper aims to present the generic and technical attributes of D3S by providing detailed information regarding the problem-solution approach (based on Evolutionary Algorithms), objectives (most common in sectorization), constraints, structure and performance.

How to know it is “the one”? Selecting the most suitable solution from the Pareto optimal set. Application to sectorization

Operations Research and Decisions

Abstract
Multi-objective optimization (MOO) considers several objectives to find a feasible set of solutions. Selecting a solution from Pareto frontier (PF) solutions requires further effort. This work proposes a new classification procedure that fits into the analytic hierarchy Process (AHP) to pick the best solution. The method classifies PF solutions using pairwise comparison matrices for each objective. Sectorization is the problem of splitting a region into smaller sectors based on multiple objectives. The efficacy of the proposed method is tested in such problems using our instances and real data from a Portuguese delivery company. A non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm (NSGA-II) is used to obtain PF solutions based on three objectives. The proposed method rapidly selects an appropriate solution. The method was assessed by comparing it with a method based on a weighted composite single-objective function. © 2024 Authors.

Deep Reinforcement Learning-Based Approach to Dynamically Balance Multi-manned Assembly Lines

Lecture Notes in Mechanical Engineering

Abstract
Assembly lines are at the core of many manufacturing systems, and planning for a well-balanced flow is key to ensure long-term efficiency. However, in flexible configurations such as Multi-Manned Assembly Lines (MMAL), the balancing problem also becomes more challenging. Due to the increased relevance of these assembly lines, this work aims to investigate the MMAL balancing problem, to contribute for a more effective decision-making process. Therefore, a new approach is proposed based on Deep Reinforcement Learning (DRL) embedded in a Digital Twin architecture. The proposed approach provides a close-to-reality training environment for the agent, using Discrete Event Simulation to simulate the production system dynamics. This methodology was tested on a real-world instance with preliminary results showing that similar solutions to the ones obtained using optimization-based strategies are achieved. This research provides evidence of success in terms of dynamic resource assignment to tasks and workers as a basis for future developments. © 2024, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.

A Value-Oriented Framework for Return Evaluation of Industry 4.0 Projects

Authors
Tostes, AD; Azevedo, A;

Publication
Lecture Notes in Mechanical Engineering

Abstract
Organizations can transform their businesses and create more value by adopting Industry 4.0 initiatives. During evaluating these projects, the decision-maker must assess significant uncertainties (risks) resulting from socio-technical, economic, and financial factors. One of the main objectives of this study was to identify the necessary building blocks to develop a framework for project implementation in high-risk scenarios, as in the case of Industry 4.0. A multi-criteria framework divided into three stages was proposed, integrating knowledge from Front-End-Innovation (FEI), Innovation Decision Process (IDP), Traditional Project Evaluation Methods, and Real Options Valuation (ROV). The first step is to identify an investment opportunity. The second step is the definition of a business model. The third step is the simulation of different implementation strategies to give managerial flexibility to decision-makers to decide the best strategy to mitigate risks. A real case study was used to test the framework. According to the results, managers can use this framework to create different project implementation scenarios and determine the best strategy to mitigate risks. However, we must still understand whether uncertainties behave discretely, dynamically, or both, the interactions between elements, and how to calculate them to improve our model. © 2024, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.

Semantic Asset Administration Shell Towards a Cognitive Digital Twin

Authors
Moreno, T; Sobral, T; Almeida, A; Soares, AL; Azevedo, A;

Publication
Lecture Notes in Mechanical Engineering

Abstract
Manufacturing industry is experiencing another revolution towards the digitalization of industrial processes. Different value chain actors must share specific and sensitive data according to business and data requirements. Digital architectures must ensure seamless and comprehensive communications between actors according to agreed-upon vocabularies. The digital representation of machines and other types of equipment, including crucial information about their static and dynamic operational data, is made possible by the ontological modelling of Asset Administration Shells (AAS), which is proposed in this paper as modular and semantically interoperable resources. These Cognitive Digital Twins are herein defined with de facto domain ontologies that model the semantics of the current operation, status and configurations of assets. This paper reports a proof-of-concept technical implementation that demonstrates an innovative digital architecture that connects and communicates active and modular Digital Twin of a machine in a bi-directional, connecting this asset to a digital manufacturing service provider. © 2024, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.
