Services network

The architecture will distinguish among Value-chain Oriented Services (VCO) and Operational Services (OS).

VCO Services

De- Re Manufacturing

Service targeted to Circular Economy value chain stakeholders. In this service, datasets collecting information and technical files about commercial products are organized and made available for the users.

Circolar innovation hubs

In this task, a software application is developed specifically targeted to exploit the DigiPrime platform federation-based architecture to support the operation of distributed Circular Innovation Hubs.

OS Services

Product Condition Prediction

The Product Condition Prediction service aims to support the de- and remanufacturing processes by providing immediate condition prognosis for second-life products, thus aiding circular economy.

Decision Support System - CE

The service is targeted to stakeholders dealing with post -use product conditions; it implements decision algorithms to define the best circular economy strategy for the products that return for post – use to the shop floors.

Digital Twin

The service enables the user to use the lean management method of value stream mapping in the context of circular economy processes. The functionalities range from digitization and documentation to simulation of the value stream.

Demand and Supply forecasting

Service to forecast the demand for (remanufactured) products and the supply of (post-)products using data from the past. Application scenarios are the support of medium-term production planning or long-term capacity planning.

Material testing

To provide information about tests and certifications that can be used and applied for/to specific materials and products with the aim to improve the knowledge of their properties and performance.
