Innovation, coordination and collaboration in service driven manufacturing supply chains

Objective

The European manufacturing industry strongly relies on external services & consumes nearly 30 % of the intermediate output of business related services. Despite this, service providers & customers are facing tremendous problems in synchronizing the business processes & facilitating collaboration. Proved concepts & tools to solve these problems are not available. The overall goal of InCoCo-S is to enhance European leadership in manufacturing systems development. The objective is to develop a set of methods to improve the overall performance of both regional European & internationally operating production systems through synchronized & well coordinated integration of the different supporting services into supply chains.

InCoCo-S will address the following four unique components which have not been addressed so far in integrated service - supply chains: 1. Development of an innovative framework including the different business processes, interdependences, information flows & performance metrics for assessing the performance impact of service providers as well. 2. Make use of the framework for radical breakthroughs in the application of embedded sensor systems to optimize remote connectivity & synchronizing of decision support systems. 3. Development of a collaboration tool simulation environment to facilitate planning & decision making in an integrated & multidisciplinary environment, to force innovation & learning in multi stakeholder networks, & to be applied in professional development & training.4. InCoCo-S integrates linkages in InCoCo-S a) to SMEs, b) to Eastern European Countries including Russia, & c) to the European Manufacturing industry in order to specify industrial & societal requirements & evaluate outcomes in a comprehensive context.

The developments in InCoCo-S will lead to a new S-SCOR reference st&ard for service - supply chains which will facilitate integration. InCoCo-S is part of the international IMS InCoCo-S initiative
