The mission of CloudiFacturing
CloudiFacturing empowers over 60 European organizations (many of them being manufacturing SMEs) and support 21 cross-national application experiments that had been primarily selected via two major Open Calls.
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is essential for the digitalization of the manufacturing sector, with 25% of the manufacturing companies in Europe profiting from ICT- enabled solutions. In order to democratically boost the competitiveness of the European manufacturers (especially Small and Medium-sized Enterprises – SMEs), innovative solutions need to consider technological and commercial scalability from the beginning.
From this perspective, the cloudification of services has become the ideal enabler in the process of manufacturing digitalization. Successful European initiatives such us CloudFlow, CloudSME or Fortissimo have demonstrated the benefits of cloudifying engineering services, by combining HPC resources, computational tools, and cloud computing platforms.
Manufacturing SMEs are empowered to compute and solve problems that cannot be tackledwithout Cloud and HPC technology, making them more competitive by reducing development times for innovative products with better performance.
The core partners of CloudFlow and CloudSME are joining forces to leverage factory data with cloud-based engineering tools:
- paving the way toward manufacturing analytics,
- enriching the manufacturing engineering process with online data
- simulating and optimizing producibility and production processes with the vision to
support it in real-time.
Three waves of application experiments validated the applicability of the results, by providing novel requirements and demanding use and business cases. To maximize the impact of the experiments, each experiment is accompanied by one of the following Digital Innovation Hub (DIH):
- Innsomnia (Spain)
- STAM (Italy)
- IT4 Innovations national supercomputing center (IT4I) (Czech Republic)
- German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) (Germany)
- innomine group (Hungary)
