ActionPlanT: A roadmap of ICT for Manufacturing in the ‘Horizon 2020’ perspective
To boost European competitiveness and speed the recovery from the financial crisis started in 2008, Europe’s manufacturing sector must fundamentally change its attitude and approach to business. Better use of information and communication technology (ICT) offers the key to meeting the challenges by enhancing end-to-end manufacturing processes from shop floor to customer engagement and all along the supply chain and to fully take advantage on new business opportunities based on services. The key objective is to use ICT to make manufacturing more efficient and user friendly, while enabling all European enterprises, irrespective of their location or size, to find opportunities beyond their borders through innovative business models involving people, processes, products and services. This presentation is the result of a synthesis of the ActionPlanT project “Roadmap for FP8” and it is intended to provide a general understanding of the work approach, the roadmap content and his alignment with EFFRA.ActionPlanT: A roadmap of ICT for Manufacturing in the ‘Horizon 2020’ perspective
