Atos leads C2NET consortium - the first collaborative Cloud-based platform for SMEs to support manufacturing management

13 Apr 2017 Paris, Madrid - Atos, a global expert in digital transformation, leads the "Cloud Collaborative Manufacturing Networks" (C2NET) consortium, launching the first collaborative Cloud-based platform for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the manufacturing industry. This unique solution offers SMEs a single and affordable Cloud-supported platform, which has until now not existed. The project is funded by the European Union as part of the Horizon 2020 programme and is made up of twenty partners including industrial entities, associations, research centres, ICT companies and public institutions.

C2NET supports SMEs to optimize their manufacturing and logistic supply chains by reducing the complexity currently surrounding manufacturing management systems. It offers a platform on which products, processes and logistical data can be securely stored and shared in the Cloud.

Business benefits include:

  • Access to data analytics in real-time, enabling businesses to respond faster and more efficiently
  • Ease of access to supply chain management information, wherever and whenever, from any mobile device including PC, tablet, smartphone
  • An easy and secure system to collaborate and share of best practice to increase productivity and enhance competiveness

The project covers:

  • The creation of a data collection environment, the C2NET Data Collection Framework, for IoT-based continuous data capture from supply network resources.
  • Collaboration Tools to provide support to the collaborative processes of the supply network.
  • Cloud Platform to integrate the data module, the optimizers and the collaborative tools in the Cloud.
  • The Optimizers to optimize the manufacturing and logistics assets in the supply network

In addition to leading the consortium, Atos actively participates in the design and implementation of the C2NET platform, coordinating the implementation of the pilot projects and designing the business models.

The results of C2NET will be shown in real-life scenarios through four pilots that will allow supply network partners to share assets and information via the Cloud, collaborate on production and delivery plans across the supply network and provide decision-makers with data analytics in real-time.

Four pilots have been developed:

  • Automotive: To automate and encourage collaborative planning, data collection and sharing of information
  • Dermo-cosmetics: To develop more collaborative, agile and distributed planning processes.
  • SMEs Industrial Park: To manage logistic flow and resources more efficiently.
  • Hydraulic & Lubrication: To provide suppliers and customers with a centralized hub of information, accessible from anywhere, which enables forecasting, identifies supplier delays, and checks delivery status.

The C2NET consortium is led by Atos and consists of 19 European organisations and a third party. It includes: Atos, Universidad Politécnica de València, Armines - Mines Albi as third party, IK4-Ikerlan, UNINOVA, Instituto Tecnológico de Informática, Tampere University of Technology, Teknologian tutkimuskeskus VTT Oy, Linagora, Caja Magica, Faurecia, Novatec, Pierre Fabre, Interop-VLab, Fluidhouse, TecMinho, Flexefelina and Antonio Abreu Metalomecánica.

This project is funded by the European Commission under the Framework Program H2020 with Grant Agreement No. 636909. For more information, you can visit the C2NET website.
