What's new in FLEXINET?
The FLEXINET PROJECT
FLEXINET is a European Union Seventh Framework Programme FP7-2013-NMP-ICT-FOF (RTD) project funded under grant agreement no 608627, which started on 1 July 2013 and runs until the end of June 2016. The project is investigating the feasibility of providing software services to support decision makers in configuration and especially rapid reconfiguration of Global Production Networks. With end-user partners from diverse manufacturing sectors … consumer white goods, industrial pumps, and food products … FLEXINET is grounded in real user requirements for development of new product-services, and the production networks needed to deliver these competitively. FLEXINET will develop prototype applications to support user decision making, based on an architecture delivering services based on novel modelling methods to encompass all aspects of network configuration, including economic and risk assessment and management, built on a novel global production network ontology.
