The VIR2EM project (Virtualization and Remote operations for Resilient and Efficient Manufacturing, Virtualization and Remote operations for Efficient and Resilient Manufacturing) aims to use process virtualization tools, systems and resources and remote operations in order to:
1) maximizing the efficiency of production systems under normal operating conditions
2) maintain operations in case of emergency situations
3) facilitate the restart of operations downstream of emergency situations ensuring flexibility and predictive capacity
Virtualization tools are widely used in the context of Smart Manufacturing: the construction of “digital copies” of systems, processes and resources allows to carry out forecasting and optimization studies, without having to act directly on physical systems, and, through the Digital Twin, to implement without interruption the strategies so defined in the operations.
