Advanced manufacturing and processing 

Research and Innovation projects under this header can cover a broad spectrum: supply chain configurations, virtual factories, material processing and handling, programming and planning, customer-driven design, energy efficiency, emissions reductions, new processing technologies, new materials, upgrading of existing machines and technologies. This also results in a broad spectrum of standardization activities that may be relevant.

Looking for instance at existing standardization activities in the manufacturing domain, CEN/TC310 deals with “Advanced Automation Technologies and their applications”. But in many cases the lead is taken by the international level, in ISO or IEC; consider for instance for instance  ISO/TC 184 Automation systems and integration, ISO/TC 261 Additive manufacturing or IEC/TC 65 Industrial-process measurement, control and automation.
