AMELIE: methodological, technological platform for the optimization of the management of the life cycle of a product
The Amelie project aim is to create a tech platform that integrates a methodology, IT technologies and services for the optimization of the integrated management of the product life cycle.
We want to analyse all the steps of the product life cycle in order to follow the evolution of the product stages, to improve and facilitate the relationship between knowledge workers, so that everything becomes an integral part of the manufacturing business.
Amelie looks like a PLM that integrates functions of Collaborative Product Design Management (CPDM) as well as management systems, customer contact and the chain-based CRM, SCM and VRM. PLM is the true base of the “Digital Revolution” in the manufacturing sector, i.e. the capacity to imagine, draw, design, build, and maintain a virtual product in a virtual factory: it allows to simulate that with a good degree of approximation the behaviour of an object before it is actually built.
In other words, the project aims to define a system capable of expressing the characteristics of a business in a digital and computable way. The companies are able to publish generic information relating to their specific skills to be used internally in the company or in the supply chain to identify virtual organizations aimed at achieving business objectives.
As a whole, the system makes it possible to search for and evaluate possible partners capable of satisfying an appropriate business request.
