ITEA 2 3D-TestBench project - a EUREKA Succes Story and Showcase

The big picture on complexity

How to get the job done when a task is shared between several teams scattered around the world? A European R&D cooperation, the EUREKA ITEA2 3D TESTBENCH project, might bring a change in project managers’ complicated lives.

Research facility environments are becoming more and more complex and interaction between different units is a growing challenge. The solution proposed by a team headed by Andy De Mets, leader of the 3D TESTBENCH project and R&D projects coordinator at Barco, is the integration of all the tools used by different groups into a single instrument, which, in turn, is compatible with all of them. ‘In fact,’ says De Mets, ‘a lot of engineering tools and software are being used and these tools are not always conceived to interact with each other.’
