Timeline and Work Progress

ManuCyte project started on the 1st of May, 2010 and will last 36 months. The work executed within the project is divided into eight work packages, which include all technical developments from specification to demonstration as well as administrative tasks. The picture below shows how the overall project tasks are scheduled.


The related workpackages are as follows:

  1. Specification
  2. Modular, plug-in based cell production platform (automated actuating components)
  3. In-line metrology system for assessing the health of cells within automated cell production (measurement components)
  4. Intelligent Manufacturing Execution System for cell production (software system)
  5. Technology Integration
  6. Demonstration
  7. Dissemination & Exploitation (during the entire duration)
  8. Project Management (during the entire duration)

Current Status:
Currently, ManuCyte project is in the phase of technical developments. This means all requirements based on use cases and non-functional features were gathered. Based on these requirements, detailed specifications of all automation platform components were generated. These specifications are realised now within work package 2, 3, and 4 by creating detailed concepts, implementing, and testing them.
