Cloud-based services for future production
Collaborative and Adaptive Process Planning for Sustainable Manufacturing Environments (CAPP-4-SME) is a consortium of eleven partners including four universities, a multinational manufacturing company as well as six small and medium-sized companies from five European countries.
The consortium's main goal is to promote technological innovations for future factories. The diversity of experience and knowledge available within the consortium enables a unique knowledge sharing both technical expertise for industrial applications and the dissemination of research results across Europe.
- Cloud-based services will have a significant impact on production planning and control of dynamic and decentralized manufacturing environments in the future, especially for small and medium-sized businesses, Professor at the Department of Industrial Engineering, KTH, Lihui Wang says.
