Zero-Defect Manufacturing (ZDM) workshop in Brussels

The Zero-Defect Manufacturing (ZDM) workshop co-organised by IDEKO, SINTEF, Politecnico di Milano and Carr Communications took place in Brussels, Belgium on 23 November 2022.

The objectives of the workshop were:

  • Quick update of running ZDM projects around digital transformation (digital platforms, AI, data analytics, blockchain) and new ZDM projects around green transformation (zero waste, circularity).
  • Initial interaction among running clusters (predictive maintenance, AI for manufacturing)
  • Open discussion on ZDM opportunities at 2nd part of HE (2025-2027) and beyond HE.

The event ran from 9.00 to 12:15 CET at the Bluepoint building, Bd Auguste Reyers 80, Brussels, and there was also a remote connection link for those unable to attend in person.
