The paper faces the problem of improving the flexibility of the manufacturing plant by rising the level of reconfigurability and the intelligence of peri-robotics. In particular the results obtained within the SwarmItFIX research project are presented. They refer to the concept and realization of robotic swarm fixturing for the support of airplane and automotive body panels during their manufacturing.
