The main objective of SimPlan’s collaboration with many other partners is therefore to provide simulated test environments for new stochastic, quantitative, data-driven evaluation models and decision support approaches. The approaches are based on leading-edge optimization technology and are developed in another subproject. The main purpose is the effective planning and control of production and operations in large manufacturing networks. These simulation-based environments are used as testbed for the developed approaches. At the same time, the simulation models should be designed so that they, as digital twins of the factory environment, can permanently support the improvement of production and logistic processes.
The project receives grants from the European H2020 research and innovation programme, ECSEL Joint Undertaking, and National Funding Authorities from 19 involved countries under grant agreement no. GAP-737459 – 999978918.
