Industrial virtual factory lowers costs and reduces emissions

Thu, 04/23/2015 - 7:51am
Scientists have developed a cloud-based, easily customized, modular software platform for improving the sustainability performance of industrial products by lowering production costs and reducing emissions. The platform provides a virtual collaborative environment for organizations that are jointly developing the same product and/or service. The system, created during the recently completed EPES (Eco-Process Engineering System for composition of services to optimise product life-cycle) project, effectively combines a context-aware approach, cloud services, industrial internet, collaborative networks, simulation and assessment of environmental impacts.
