"Adopting Future Internet technologies in manufacturing industries"
  • Project
    Starting date: 01 April 2013
    Duration in months: 30
    FP7 Call: FP7-2012-ICT-FI
    Total costs: € 18,483,000.00
    Consortium: 36 partners from 11 European countries
  • The Mission
    The mission of the FITMAN (Future Internet Technologies for MANufacturing industries) project is to provide the FI PPP Core Platform with 10 industry-led use case trials in the domains of Smart, Digital and Virtual Factories of the Future
    FITMAN Trials (4 conducted by Large Enterprises, 6 by SMEs) will test and assess the suitability, openness and flexibility of FI-WARE Generic Enablers while contributing to the STEEP (social-technological-economical-environmental-political) sustainability of EU Manufacturing Industries.
    The use case trials belong to several manufacturing sectors such as automotive, aeronautics, white goods, furniture, textile/clothing, LED lighting, plastic, construction, and manufacturing assets management.

The I-ESA'14 Conference is being organized by the École des Mines d'Albi-Carmaux and INTEROP-VLab (International Virtual Laboratory for Enterprise Interoperability) from the 24th of March 2014 to the 28th of March 2014 in Albi (France).


Enterprises and organisations (of any kind) embedded in today's economic environment are deeply dependent from their ability to take part into collaborations. Consequently, it is strongly required for them to be able to take part into emerging, potentially opportunistically, collaborative networks. The concept of “interoperability” has been defined by INTEROP-VLab as “The ability of an enterprise system or application to interact with others at a low cost in a flexible approach”. Consequently, interoperability of organisations appears as a major issue to succeed in building on the fly emerging enterprise networks.


This edition of I-ESA is subtitled “interoperability for agility, resilience and plasticity of collaborations”. Establishing efficient and relevant collaborative situations requires to manage interoperability from a dynamic point of view: a relevant and efficient collaboration of organisations might require adaptation to remain in line with potentially changing objectives, potentially evolving resources, unexpected events, etc. This specific aspect of interoperability will be the keystone of I-ESA 2014.
