    Project Details


    IMS (Intelligent Manufacturing Systems) project 95001 and EU-ESPRIT 26509.
    The Globeman21 project focussed on networked manufacturing. Main characteristics of global manufacturing is: dynamic and collaboration based with distributed business processes. The mission of Globeman21 was to move the Global Manufacturing practices from rigid supply-chain structures into globally distributed, dynamic networks og agile and focused enterprises. DTU-responsibility in EU was to develop the new concepts of Global Manufacturing. Based on GERAM (Generalised Enterprise-Reference Architecture and Methodologies, ISO/DIS 15704) a reference framework model describing the relations between network, Virtual Enterprise, and product life cycle was created. By use of this framework was created a Virtual Enterprise Management Methodology, and a mapping of the industrial pilot projects for proof of framework applicability and industrial experience collection - in all resulting in a coherent theoretical platform for the understanding of Virtual Enterprises with reference examples of industry-proven cases.
    Project participants from USA, Canada, Japan, Australia, EU/EFTA, Corning Cables UK and EU Coordinating Partners in all 21 industrial and 17 academic partners.
