Production performs an essential position in ecu financial system and society, and is predicted to proceed as an enormous generator of wealth within the foreseeable destiny. A aggressive production is key for the prosperity of Europe, specifically within the face of increasing deindustrialisation. This publication offers a wide imaginative and prescient of the way forward for production, analysed from a system-management standpoint and with a distinct specialise in ICT-related concerns. each one contribution provides a fancy and multidisciplinary examine area from a particular point of view. the 1st a part of the ebook offers an summary on expertise: previous, current and destiny, whereas the next themes are brought within the latter a part of the e-book: - Product Lifecycle administration - Sustainable items and approaches - construction Scheduling and keep an eye on - Benchmarking and function Measures - business companies - Human components and schooling in production - Collaborative Engineering - offer Chain Integration The booklet is meant to impress debate, construct consensus and stimulate artistic dialogue, resulting in additional novel examine tasks sooner or later.

Keywords: ManVis, manufacturing visions, technology foresight, R&D policies. 1 INTRODUCTION The specific support action Manufacturing Visions – Integrating Diverse Perspectives into PanEuropean Foresight (ManVis) (Contract No NMP2-CT-2003-507139) started in early 2004. Its aim was to accompany the continuing policy process of enhancing European competitiveness in manufacturing industries and to include views of European manufacturing experts collected through a Delphi survey as well as views of stakeholders and overseas experts collected at workshops and in interviews.
Outsourcing is common within a country or a region, and is a normal way to achieve industrial improvement. When Europe starts to outsource to other regions, the movement is a bigger threat than off-shoring, because the creation of the intellectual capital is moved, and by that the more advanced jobs are lost. Concerning relocation itself, there is on the one hand the relocation of production to locations near the consumers. With a rapid expansion of the product variants, it is increasingly efficient to locate production closer to the market to avoid long delivery times and a growing stock of finished goods in the market chain.
Owing to the far gone development of well defined and documented procedures, in the views of the experts it will become easier to relocate industries and manufacturing plants in particular. Companies which are late in reducing the dependence of local knowledge on the production locations are instead more likely to outsource significant parts of the operation. When analysing the answers the ManVis experts gave on regional leadership in different research and development areas, a clear pattern emerges.
