Innovative End-to-end Management of Dynamic Manufacturing Networks (IMAGINE) targets the development and delivery of a novel comprehensive methodology and the respective platform for effective end-to-end management of dynamic manufacturing networks in an innovative plug and produce approach, and aims at supporting the emergence of a powerful new production model, based on community, collaboration, self-organization and openness rather than on hierarchy and centralized control.
IMAGINE addresses the need of modern manufacturing enterprises for a novel end-to-end management of dynamic manufacturing networks by developing a multi-party collaboration platform for innovative and responsive manufacturing that encompasses globally distributed partners, suppliers and production facilities (SMEs and/or OEMs) that jointly conduct multi-party manufacturing.
