vf-OS is a collaborative research and innovation project funded by the European Commission's H2020 program under the grant agreement number 723710.
The vf-OS Project will develop an Open Operating System for Virtual Factories, deployed in a cloud platform, supporting a multi-sided market ecosystem for providing a range of services to the connected factory of the future to integrate better manufacturing and logistics processes.
This manufacturing approach can enable a whole new level of flexibility and scalability in the manufacturing domain and, like any good concept, tries not the re-invent the wheel but to take advantage of, replicate, and adopt such concepts and tools.
Analogy between regular Operating Systems and vf-OS
The implementation of the vf-OS platform involves the interplay of different streams of work that are organised in 11 work packages. These work packages specify, implement and validate the vf-OS platform and its supporting elements, core tools & services.
