Boosting supply chain resilience


Flex4Res is an EU project about data spaces for flexible production lines. Its goal is to make manufacturing in Europe more resilient.

Manufacturing industries continuously face the challenge of delivering high-quality products under high production rates while minimizing non-value-adding activities. The recent COVID-19 pandemic is causing manufacturers to rethink their global supply chains and the flexibility of their production sites to get a resilient manufacturing.

The European research project Flex4Res aims to improve the resilience of supply chains. Therefore, it provides an open platform for secure and sovereign data exchange along the supply chain to support production networks’ reconfiguration for resilient manufacturing value chains. Additional toolboxes for resilience assessment and reconfiguration planning enable stakeholders across the supply chain to manage different types of disruptions by reconfiguring supply chains and production lines quickly and efficiently.

EIT Manufacturing Central leads the communication activities and awareness creation as well as the exploitation and creation of a business plan.
