Overall StructureDIGIMAN is composed of 6 work packages

Project Structure




WP1 - (WP leader: CEA Tech-LITEN)

Project management

WP1: Project Management is where the primary controlling management is undertaken ensuring the work proceeds on time and to budget and that activities are effectively co-ordinated between work packages.


WP2 - (WP leader: Toyota Motor Europe)

Requirement Setting & PoP Measurement

This work package involves the setting of requirements for i) the attainment of AC64 fully automated stack assembly, and ii) demonstration of that attainment to MRL6 - Capability to produce a prototype system or subsystem in a production relevant (i.e. automotive) environment.


WP3 - (WP leader: Freudenberg)

Digital QC & Converting
The aim of this work package is to address an industry wide gap in the supply chain processes for the converting of imperfect roll-stock into pre-screened (i.e. known-good), ready for assembly, GDL components via the development of a Digital QC & Converting module, which directly interfaces with the PoP demonstrator and enable lines-side converting.

WP4 - (WP leader: WMG, The University of Warwick)

Cell Assembly PoP Development
This work package focuses on the proof-of-process (PoP) development of an automated fuel cell assembly system, the output from which should be capable of linking with Intelligent Energy existing automated stack assembly module. A novel modular reconfigurable PoP facility is envisaged.

WP5 - (WP leader: CEA Tech-LITEN)

Digital Materials Characterisation
The objectives are to develop digital models for in line characterisation of the gas diffusion layers. Efficient quality control methods will require the development of a database of gas diffusion layer empirical ex-situ and in-situ properties and performance and the correlation with their digital signature.

WP6 - (WP leader: Intelligent Energy)

Digital Manufacturing
The aim of this work package is to facilitate the digital modelling of cause and effects relationships via the use of ‘big data’ mining and analysis techniques.

WP7 - (WP leader: Pretexo)

Digital Manufacturing
Spreading knowledge generated by the project beyond its boundaries is a cross-cutting policy in H2020. This requirement and project objective must be reconciled with the need to manage appropriately the knowledge generated by the project in order to protect intellectual and industrial property. The objectives of WP7 are:
  • Appropriate knowledge management with respect to IPR and edition of a dissemination protocol
  • Ensure effective and sufficient dissemination of project results, including conference presentations, demonstration and/or publications, commensurate with the scale of the project activities and extent of innovation.
  • Develop and exploit appropriate channels for communication of project activities and results to a non-specialist audience.
  • Evauation of the project potential impact, confirming and undertaking the steps required to achieve that impact
