The vision of IFaCOM is to achieve near zero defect level of manufacturing for all kinds of manufacturing, with emphasis on production of high value parts, on large variety custom design manufacturing and on high performance products.
This shall be achieved through:
Improved performance process control to reduce defect output and reduce the costs of defect avoidance
Enhanced quality control to obtain more predictable product quality
Enhanced manufacturing process capability independent of manufactured parts
The objectives are to reach a level of excellence for a systematic body of knowledge on near zero defect manufacturing output through improved process control.
In IFaCOM this will be obtained through development of new manufacturing strategies and methods which will be demonstrated in industrial cases. The fulfillment of these topics of the objective will lead to better performance in industries that apply the new technologies developed and an opportunity for equipment manufacturers to offer new high performance products, machine tools and auxiliary equipment on the market.
