Virtual Enterprises for Integrated Industrial Solutions

Objective

VERITAS overall objective is to increase the dynamics of European Industrial Enterprises by transforming them, where appropriate and possible, to more agile and re-active companies that use the Virtual Enterprise concept in a manageable and effective way. Our goal is to help manufacturing companies with high production-related costs to understand and implement the concept of virtual enterprise, enabled through smart organisation and process restructuring and supported by the use of Information Technology, cross-organisation Work Management solutions in particular. We refer to the combination of these elements as the VERITAS concept. The project will target the machine tool industry in particular, but will try to keep the findings and output abstract, to an extent that will make a similar usage of the results possible in other industries.

VERITAS' primary activity will be the permanent creation of three stable virtual industry clusters. VERITAS will not force a VE initiative within its time horizon, but will provide all the necessary prerequisites and knowledge to form a VE in the future. This includes comprehensive training of the target companies in configuration, co-operation and competence management for VE as well as the development of tools to monitor and manage VEs. In addition, VERITAS will produce an agility evaluation method for companies to test the potential applicability of the VERITAS concept to their organisations and an implementation guide, which will provide step-by-step instructions for forming a virtual enterprise. A multilingual portal solution will be set-up and implemented to reach the target industrial organisations on a large scale. The portal will enable the target companies to learn about, understand, test and implement the VERITAS concept, supported by interactive tools.
