In FoFdation, PARAGON’s main focus is to develop the Smart Sustainability Optimiser. This module will be responsible for identifying and generating optimal production configurations in order to achieve maximum sustainability for the product lifecycle. These optimal configurations will be based on the critical information available from the Manufacturing Information Pipeline and the other main modules that will be developed within the project.
Among several others, PARAGON is currently involved in the related EU-funded ICT project “Integrated management of product heterogeneous data” – iPROD, (2011 – 2014), as part of a consortium consisting of 14 partners from 8 European countries. iProd will improve the efficiency and quality of the Product Development Process developing a flexible, service oriented, customer driven software framework that will be the backbone of computer systems associated with current and new development processes.
