The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) is one of the two Swiss Institutes of Technology, educating more than 7000 students in all engineering disciplines and participating in numerous national and international research projects in all engineering domains. The Computer Aided Design and Production Laboratory (LICP) of the Institute of Production and Robotics of EPFL is involved in various fundamental and applied research projects in the CADCAM and PLM area in collaboration with Swiss and European industrial partners, mainly SMEs. To respond to the scientific challenges presented by important research problems in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Life Cycle Engineering (LCE) the following three activities have been defined within LICP: Product Modeling and Reasoning for Manufacture/ Assembly/Remanufacture; Informatics for Planning and Scheduling for Manufacture/ Assembly/Remanufacture; Product Data Pre-Processing and Exchanging for Part Production.
