START: October 2011
DURATION: 36 months
ENEPLAN Consortium:

Two top-level OEMs (FIAT-CRF and GORENJE)
One aeronautics sector supplier (NEW)
Four metal forming machine builders
(PRIMA, FINNPOWER, GIZELIS &GIGANT)
Three end users / suppliers (TEKS, IAM and EXALCO)
Four high-ranked European universities
(LMS, VTT, ITIA-CNR and AMRC)
Three knowledge intensive companies as RTD providers
(CADCAMATION, CASP and IDEKO).

PLANNING SYSTEM
ENEPLAN Project
The ENEPLAN project aims at the de-
velopment of a digital, energy-efficient,
multi-process, networked, manufactur-
ing system adapted to the functional
specifications of metal formed or ma-
chined parts for automotive, aeronautic
and domestic appliances. Seventeen
partners, stemming from seven Euro-
pean countries and comprising OEMs,
SMEs, RTD and technology providers,
work jointly to deliver through ENE-
PLAN a manufacturing planning deci-
sion support tool (Meta-CAM tool), for
the optimization of a plant operation.
This tool will be used from the concep-
tual phase of the product (final blue-
prints) up to the its final dispatch to the
customer.

Business Cases
The developments of the ENEPLAN project
will be demonstrated in three demonstrators,
coming from the automotive industry, the
aeronautics industry and at last but least
from the white goods industry.

White Goods Industry
6 versions of front panels for refriger-
ator doors

Aeronautics Industry
Loading ramp hinge of a military air-
craft

Automotive Industry
Automotive seat frames
Vision
Development of a network-based MetaCAM
Tool towards energy-efficient multi-process
manufacturing & optimum process planning
from a given set of production requirements,
adapted to the functional specifications of met-
al formed or machined parts for automotive,
aeronautic and domestic appliances.
Key Objectives
The key objectives of the ENEPLAN project in-
clude the:
Environmental footprint reduction
Proper combination selection into the station
Station energy consumption reduction
Waste materials reduction CO2 emissions
reduction

Energy Efficiency Improvement
Deep understanding per process
Shut down & stand methods
Reduction of idle time
Multi-process & multi-company distribut-
ed control
Use of the same control along the supply
chain
Fast adaptation of the line
Forecast demand
