The MSEE Work Breakdown Structure is directly linked to the main objectives of the project. The Work Packages (WP) are conceptually grouped in Sub-Projects (SP) as follows:

  • Objective 1, establishing scientific and methodological foundations for service-oriented virtual factories and enterprises (SP1)
  • Objective 2, developing a collaborative industrial model for Manufacturing Innovation Ecosystems (SP2)
  • Objective 3, adopting Future Internet architectures and platforms to next generation software applications for virtual factories and enterprises (SP3)
  • Objective 4, aligning Business with IT by collaborative development and delivery platforms (SP4)
  • Objective 5, service-oriented, collaborative industrial models for European manufacturing industry, will pervade all the SPs (SP5)
  • Objective 6, experimenting Service Orientation and Innovation Ecosystem as a viable exit strategy from the crisis and an opportunity for sustainable healthy growth (SP6)
  • Objective 7, creating, nurturing and implementing in the EU manufacturing industry and society in the large a Manufacturing Service Ecosystem self-sustainable impact policy and action plan, via training, dissemination, standardization and exploitation activities (SP7)
