The objective of the TexWIN project is to increase productivity by up to 20% and reduce down-times of machines by one third of workshop factories. A hierarchical control approach (controlling both factory and production unit) will reduce stop times, set-up times and waiting times, increase flexibility and reliability of processes, and reduce sampling effort. Enterprises applying TexWIN will be able to maximise process quality (capability and efficiency) and product quality (defined product characteristics) and enhance their responsiveness towards unforeseen events in previous production steps and the production of new products.
