e-Science Background - Why e-manufacturing? - What is e-manufacturing? e-Manufacturing fundamentals - Internet enabled technologies - Advanced technologies for e-manufacturing - Internet and manufacturing knowledge management - Computing infrastructure for e-manufacturing e-Manufacturing applications and potentials - Collaborative design and product development - Mass customization and customer oriented e-manufacturing - Remote control and condition monitoring - Virtual manufacturing and systems - e-Supply chain management - e-Enterprise and global manufacturing Conclusions and the future ‘standing’

3 Why e-Manufacturing? Digitisation Globalisation Mobility
e-Science Why e-Manufacturing? The characteristics of e-manufacturing emphases the new philosophy through which manufacturing will be operated in integration with Internet technology. e-manufacturing philosophy results from that the way people work is being changed by the Internet, for instance: Digitisation Globalisation Mobility Collaborative work Immediacy

8 UK e-Science research program
(2001 onward) e-Science What is meant by e-Science? In the future, e-Science will refer to the large scale science that will increasingly be carried out through distributed global collaboration enabled by the Internet. Typically, a feature of such collaborative scientific enterprises is that they will require access to very large data collections, very large scale computing resources and high performance visualisation back to the individual user scientists. The Core Program has been structured around 6 key elements: A national e-Science centre linked to a network of regional grid centres Generic grid middleware and demonstrator projects Grid ‘IRC’ research projects Support for e-Science testbeds Participation in international grid projects and activities Establishment of a grid network team -

9 EU 6th Framework - IST program (2004 onward)

10 What is e-Manufacturing? - (1)
e-Science What is e-Manufacturing? - (1) e-manufacturing covers a range of online manufacturing activities for products and services, including product design, production control and conditions monitoring, supply chain management, maintenance and sale services, etc., through the Internet/Intranet/Extranet and grid computing infrastructure.

11 What is e-Manufacturing? - (2)
e-Science What is e-Manufacturing? - (2) e-manufacturing is the complete electronic (computer systems and networks) integration of all factory components. Users range from operators to technicians to engineers to managers. - UK Industrial White Paper (2002)
