European research and innovation agenda for future simulation and forecasting technologies

Acronimo Pathfinder

Abstract The European leadership and excellence in manufacturing are being significantly threatened by the huge economic crisis that hit the Western countries over the last years. More sustainable and efficient production systems able to keep pace with the market evolution are of paramount importance in th e recovery plan aimed at innovating the European competitive landscape. An essential ingredient for a winning innovation path is a more aware and widespread use of ICT in manufacturing - related processes. The Pathfinder project investigates, in particular, the role of simulation and forecasting technologies as a lever to increase manufacturing performance and proposes the development of a roadmap capable to clearly point out key challenges for these technologies future development. Pathfinder project?s objec tives are: ? to carry out an extensive analysis of the current framework and state - of - the art of the simulation and forecasting technologies taking into consideration main key players, industries and research initiatives; ? to increase the understanding of how simulation and forecasting technologies can improve manufacturing performance and to develop an impact measuring tool; ?
