IMAGINE participated actively in the APMS 2012 (Advances in Production Management Systems) International Conference that was hosted on September 24-26 in Rhodes Island, Greece, sponsored by the IFIP WG 5.7 and co-sponsored by the ATHENA Research & Innovation Centre and the Hellenic Maintenance Society.

The conference theme has been "Competitive Manufacturing for Innovative Products and Services" and IMAGINE has contributed with two papers, entitled "Benefits and Risks in Dynamic Manufacturing Networks" and "Dynamic Manufacturing Networks Monitoring and Governance" respectively. In a dedicated session on Managing International Operations, two members of the IMAGINE project team delivered presentations

  • on the current state of the art in real-time data collection and network monitoring, and operational level DMN governance,
  • as well as on the benefits and risks encountered in the context of dynamic alliances among manufacturing enterprises, while rendering clear the scope and characteristics of Dynamic Manufacturing Networks according to the IMAGINE project.

Preceded by a PhD workshop and the annual IFIP WG5.7 meeting the conference, and with the view to present the current state of the art in Manufacturing, Production Management and associated Enabling Technologies, as well as to support the strengthening of networking and the creation of synergies among the thriving IFIP WG5.7 community, the conference provided fertile ground for lively discussions that attracted the interest of the delegates, coming from 31 different countries across the globe, and turned out to be thus an excellent dissemination opportunity for the IMAGINE project.
