Production performs a necessary function in eu financial system and society, and is anticipated to proceed as an enormous generator of wealth within the foreseeable destiny. A aggressive production is vital for the prosperity of Europe, specially within the face of increasing deindustrialisation. This booklet presents a wide imaginative and prescient of the way forward for production, analysed from a system-management standpoint and with a unique concentrate on ICT-related issues. every one contribution provides a posh and multidisciplinary study area from a selected standpoint. the 1st a part of the ebook supplies an outline on know-how: previous, current and destiny, whereas the subsequent issues are brought within the latter a part of the publication: - Product Lifecycle administration - Sustainable items and techniques - construction Scheduling and regulate - Benchmarking and function Measures - commercial prone - Human components and schooling in production - Collaborative Engineering - offer Chain Integration The e-book is meant to impress debate, construct consensus and stimulate artistic dialogue, resulting in additional novel study projects sooner or later.

28 Within each country there are distinct top-level issues in the debates: • China’s main concerns are managing growth and ensuring that power and infrastructure are in place to support this growth. Another issue is re-balancing the economy with services. China is encouraging the establishment of R&D activities, both Chinese public funding of R&D and international private R&D, and this is challenging the developed economies perceptions of what activities they will remain competitive in and retain.

New materials may play a more 26 prominent role in the sector of fabricated metal products. e. in self-adapting systems as part of advanced machine tools. The car industry (mostly seen as a lead user for many technologies) is facing the challenge to master two more engine concepts (hybrid and fuel cells) parallel to the optimisation of the combustion engines. The ManVis experts do not prioritise one single option but the impacts on other industries could be dramatic. This analysis is based on the ManVis experts’ views and on secondary material.

These would have been only theoretical exercises without the evolution provided by Internet-based ICT. Looking to the main process of New Product Development (NPD), the design activities are supported by diverse ICT tools, which are continuously developing and evolving. For example, in the area of product development, ICT tools supporting product engineers have been existing since more than 30 years and have now reached third generation: the first 2D Computer Aided Design (CAD) systems, introduced in the 1970s, were replaced in the 1980s by 3D CAD; in the 1990s, owing to hardware innovation, more functional features were introduced, such as assembly supporting definition, or design path recording.
