Description UNITE promotes secondment of research teams working in the area of the future Internet, as an enabler to achieve sustainable knowledge sharing within the enlarged Europe.
Objectives:
– Financed secondment and connection of researchers from one to 12 months, following an already  pre-identified offer/demand matrix of organizations based on expertise (targeted mobility);
– Organization of targeted workshops and two doctoral symposiums, across an enlarged Europe to build-up synergies and support networking and collaborations;
– Sharing of public knowledge generated by other EU funded research projects;
– Creation an “Eastern Europe” INTEROP-Vlab Pole to achieve long-term cooperation with the organizations from that region.

MSEE FP7-ICT / Project No. 284860

Full title Manufacturing Service Ecosystem
Research area FoF-ICT-2011.7.3 – Virtual Factories and enterprises
Duration 36 months / start date: 2011-10-01 / completed
Description
By 2015, novel service-oriented management methodologies and the Future Internet universal business infrastructure will enable European virtual factories and enterprises to self-organize in distributed, autonomous, interoperable, non-hierarchical innovation ecosystems of tangible and intangible manufacturing assets, to be virtually described, on-the-fly composed and dynamically delivered as a Service, end-to-end along the globalised value chain.

 

The MSEE 2015 Vision stems upon two complementary pillars, which have characterized the last 10 years of research about Virtual Organizations, Factories and Enterprises: Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) and Digital Business Ecosystems (DBE).

The first Grand Challenge for MSEE project is to make SSME (Service Science, Management and Engineering) evolve towards Manufacturing Systems and Factories of the Future, i.e.:

  • from a methodological viewpoint to adapt, modify, extend SSME concepts so that they could be applicable to traditionally product-oriented enterprises;
  • from an implementation viewpoint to instantiate Future Internet service oriented architectures and platforms for global manufacturing service systems.

The second Grand Challenge for MSEE project is to transform current manufacturing hierarchical supply chains into manufacturing open ecosystems, i.e.:

  • to define and implement business processes and policies to support collaborative innovation in a secure industrial environment;
  • to define a new collaborative architecture for ESA, to support business-IT interaction and distributed decision making in virtual factories and enterprises.

 

The synthesis of the two Grand Challenges above in industrial business scenarios and their full adoption in some European test cases will result in new Virtual Factory Industrial Models, where service orientation and collaborative innovation will support a new renaissance of Europe in the global manufacturing context.
