Challenges: 

European SMEs do not currently have access to advanced management systems and to collaborative tools due to their restricted resources. SMEs manufacturing value chains are distributed and dependent on complex information and material flows requiring new approaches to reduce the complexity of manufacturing management systems. They need ubiquitous tools supporting collaboration among value chain partners and providing advanced algorithms to achieve holistic global and local optimization of manufacturing assets and to respond faster and more efficiently to unforeseen changes.

C2NET aims to collect the most promising results from R&D EU Framework Program projects and build a novel Cloud Architecture to provide SMEs affordable tools (in term of cost and usability) to help them to overcome the current economic crisis and to enhance their competitiveness in the global economy.

Value Proposition: 

The goal of C2NET Project is the creation of cloud-enabled tools for supporting the SMEs supply network optimization of manufacturing and logistic assets based on collaborative demand, production and delivery plans. C2NET Project will provide a scalable real-time architecture, platform and software to allow the supply network partners:

  • to master complexity and data security of the supply network,
  • to store and share product, process and logistic data,
  • to optimize the manufacturing assets by the collaborative computation of production plans,
  • to optimize the logistics assets through efficient delivery plans and
  • to render the complete set of supply chain management information on the any digital mobile device (PC, tablets, smartphones) of decision makers enabling them to monitor, visualize, control, share and collaborate.
    Outcomes: 

    The expected outcomes of the C2NET project are:

    • Data Collection Framework: To provide new ways to securely store relevant information from supply network partners in public cloud, community cloud or private cloud, ensuring data security and provide the ability of data sharing and data analytics.
    • Network Optimizer: To provide new tools for supporting the supply network optimization of manufacturing and logistic assets.
    • Cloud Platform: To provide new tools to support decision-makers in collaborative processes with intuitive UIs that display in real-time the right data at the right time, built in advanced apps for mobile devices for selective management functionalities across the supply network.
    • Collaboration Tools: To provide a new cloud space for allowing the access to all the participants in the value chain to support their decisions and processes enhancement.
      Business Impact: 

      The business ambition of C2NET project is:

      • To develop a new approach for facilitating collaborative demand, production and delivery plans along the supply network.
      • To provide new tools for supporting the supply network optimization of manufacturing and logistic assets.
      • To securely store relevant information from supply network partners in public cloud, community cloud or private cloud, ensuring data security and provide the ability of data sharing and data analytics.
      • To support decision-makers with intuitive UIs that display in real-time the right data at the right time, built in advanced apps for mobile devices for selective management functionalities across the supply network.
