Zero Defect Manufacturing Cluster

Qu4lity, Stream-0d, and Z-Fact0r formed a Zero-Defect Manufacturing (ZDM) Cluster. The three projects are willing to join forces and undertake dissemination activities aimed at giving visibility to the projects and to the ZDM approach, which is a common denominator. These activities include joint participation to events, joint publications, etc.


  • Stream-0d is a European-wide project funded within the Horizon 2020 framework programme, which has the ambition to tackle one of the main challenges of the manufacturing industry: reaching a zero-defect production of automotive components through real-time simulation and data analysis.


  • Qu4lity is the biggest European project dedicated to Autonomous Qu4lity (AQ) and Zero-Defect Manufacturing (ZDM) in the Industry 4.0. Qu4lity will demonstrate, in a realistic, measurable and replicable way an open, certifiable and highly standardized, SME-friendly and transformative shared data-driven ZDM product and service model for Factory 4.0 through 14 pilot lines.

Stream-0d and Z-Fact0r projects will end in March 2020; Qu4lity in 2022.

In the context of this ZDM cluster,

  • Stream-0d project invited Z-Fact0r to attend Stream-0d’s upcoming workshop: “New approaches and opportunities towards zero-defect and smart manufacturing” taking place in Wrocław, Poland on the 3rd of March 2020 and covering the following topics: Zero-Defect Manufacturing, Manufacturing of automotive components, Production automation, Horizon2020, Horizon Europe, New funding opportunities for industrial players. Our partner Servizi Confindustria Bergamo will participate at this event in order to present the Z-Fact0r project, elaborating on the end-user applications. Update: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the travel restrictions imposed, Servizi Confindustria Bergamo did not participate at the event.

  • Z-Fact0r project invited both Qu4lity and Stream-0d to participate at our project’s Academic Workshops in Nicosia, Cyprus on the 18th March 2020, in order to present their projects and results. Stream-0d has already confirmed its participation.

  • Z-Fact0r, Stream-0d and Qu4lity projects have agreed to publish a joint article on Project Repository Journal explaining the ZDM topic and presenting all three projects. The article will be published in April 2020.
