FLEXINET Aims 

To understand how best to configure and re-configure a global production network, in the context of ever changing product-service requirements.  

To provide services that support the design and provision of flexible interoperable networks of production systems that can be rapidly and accurately re-configured.

 Objectives:

  1. To understand the information, material and financial flow requirements and issues for product-service systems in intelligent globalised production networks.
  2. To provide a formal semantic and knowledge foundation from which to base the flexible re-configuration of intelligent globalised manufacturing information system networks which can meet the needs of SMEs as well as OEMs.
  3. To define methods and processes, and construct FLEXINET services that can be used in the design of network configurations to support the dynamic evolution of product-service production networks.
  4. To apply the FLEXINET concepts to industrial use cases and evaluate the results.
  5. To exploit and disseminate the FLEXINET results to scientific and industrial organisations including standardisation bodies.
