The IPRODOC project concerns the deployment, testing and validation of a methodology able to support the rationalisation of SMEs supply processes in the mechanical sector.
In order to achieve a high integration of process and knowledge within inter-company relationships, a new ultra flexible business model will be developed. Parallel technology scouting will be carried out and proper ICT tools will be identified. The soundness of the methodology at technological and organisational level will be proved through its implementation within 2 industrial pilot clusters.
The European exploitation and dissemination of project outcomes will be addressed to SMEs, entrepreneurial associations and technology transfer organisations.
The project will be carried out by a consortium of 15 partners spread in 4 EU countries, involving 10 manufacturing companies - 9 of which are SMEs and 5 technology transfer and research organisations.
