|讲座内容||Virtual factory models needs to be created before the real factory is implemented to better explore different design options, evaluate their performance and virtual commission the automation systems thus saving time-to-production. This foundational concept to future manufacturing allows the flexible amalgamation of manufacturing resources in multiple organisations. EU H2020 FIRST project - vF Interoperation suppoRting buSiness innovaTion, provides new technology and methodologies to describe manufacturing assets; to compose and integrate existing services into collaborative virtual manufacturing processes; and to deal with evolution of changes. In this talk, we will explain the general view of virtual factory to enhance manufacturing integration through the application of advanced IT solutions, how to bring together researchers with expertise in the designing interoperability frameworks for facilitating interoperability on data/information, services and process levels respectively to lead significant outcomes of business innovations for virtual factories.|
