CloudiFacturing Solution: The Digital Marketplace for Digital Engineering
The creation of a single point of access to the consolidated technology by connecting people and facilitating collaboration, as well as providing interactive interfaces for different service providers and workflows will be available in the 2nd quarter 2020.
The CloudiFacturing Marketplace will be the default entry point to the CloudiFacturing solution. In other words, it will directly interact with the CloudiFacturing platform components and will therefore, enable the execution of artefacts available within the execution engines.
CloudiFacturing is a project, which is open to new (teams of) participants (3rd parties). With our Open Calls, we are looking for / seeking innovative use cases in the context of the project’s mission.
The mission of CloudiFacturing is to optimize production processes and producibility using Cloud/HPC-based modeling and simulation, leveraging online factory data and advanced data analytics, thus contributing to the competitiveness and resource efficiency of manufacturing SMEs, ultimately fostering the vision of Factories 4.0 and the circular economy. To pursue this mission, computationally demanding production engineering and simulation, as well as data analytics tools, are to be provided as Cloud services to ease accessibility and make their use more affordable.
CloudiFacturing will empower over 60 European organizations (many of them being manufacturing SMEs) and will support about 20 cross-national application experiments that will primarily be selected via two Open Calls.
The First Open Call 2018 started on the 1st of July and closed on the 30th of September.
The Second Open Call 2019 started on the 1st of July and closed on the 30th of September.
