CloudiFacturing Open Call facts

Why to participate?

Selected proposers (third parties) will have the opportunity
• to investigate and gather experience with HPC/Cloud Computing technologies for their use case;
• to explore technical benefits, e.g. better assessment of the producibility and production process optimization by more accurate simulation results using HPC/Cloud resources;
• to exploit information discovered in factory data to improve processes;
• to assess Cloud-­‐based business settings and their impact; and
• to leverage the CloudiFacturing Digital Marketplace being developed as a new distribution channel.

What does CloudiFacturing offer?

• Vendor independent Cloud infrastructure already containing engineering and simulation applications and services on which new experiments can be built to extend the range of service offerings via the CloudiFacturing Digital Marketplace.
• A tailored HPC/Cloud infrastructure (with a contractual environment protecting IPR).
• Independent evaluation of experiments against your requirements.
• Experiences from more than 30 experiments
• Consultancy on business models.
• Participation in the I4MS ecosystem (

Summary of the Open Call facts.


Cloudification of Production Engineering for Predictive Digital Manufacturing

CloudiFacturing is a European Innovation Action (IA) in the framework of Factories of the Future (FoF) with the mission of optimizing production processes and producibility, using Cloud/HPC-based modelling and simulation, and leveraging online factory data with advanced data analytics; thus, contributing to the competitiveness andresource efficiency manufacturing companies, especially SMEs. To pursue this mission, computationally demanding production engineering and simulation as well as data analytics tools are to be provided as Cloud services to ease accessibility and make their use more affordable.
