November 2004: An updated version of the roadmap summary is available now. Please provide your comments and suggestions in our thread CE Vision 2010 in our online discussion board.

Overview

A good overview about the CE-NET roadmaps is given in a presentation by Johann Riedel [PDF, 651k].

Process

To discuss the future of CE in workshops - physical and virtual. To carry out interviews with companies. To build consensus for the Roadmap: using workshops, this web page, by attending external related events to promote the workshop and engage with a wider community, etc.

Roadmap No. 1

Deliverable D02 - Roadmap No.1 [PDF, 255k] is the first of three roadmaps. In particular, Roadmap Nr.1 is focused on the identification of:

  • the Current Context and Trends:
    overview on the new economy requirements and the industrial trends: the externalisation of non core activities and the paradigm of Concurrent Enterprise (CE). The essential element identified for accessing larger market share is the ability to rapidly modify and innovate products: the competitive advantage is obtained by shifting the focus from efficiency (cost) to creativity (innovative content).
  • the Industrial Research Needs:
    four main categories of Needs have been identified: Business, Organisation & Human Needs, Enabling ICT, Standardisation, Education & Training
  • Recommendations:
    • Stimulate a neo-humanistic management approach with social and economic sustainability
    • Free employees from spatial and time constraints of their organisation.
    • Promote and support holistic training and education of new engineers for the concurrent enterprise
    • Elaborate legal frameworks for the concurrent enterprise
    • Evolve the traditional product concept into the "extended product" concept.
    • Develop technologies for rapid knowledge sharing and capitalising in heterogeneous, networked environments.
    • Support the development of new engineering techniques and associated business models.
    • Support consolidation of technology with respect to interoperability and availability in product development.
    • Ease the identification of success factors and critical determinants in complex environments.
    • Semantic application integration
    • Product lifecycle management

Roadmap No. 2

Deliverable D08 - Roadmap No. 2 [PDF, 321k] is the second of three roadmaps. In particular, Roadmap Nr.2 is focused on the identification of:

  • the Current Context and Trends:
    overview on the new economy requirements and the industrial trends: the externalisation of non core activities and the paradigm of Concurrent Enterprise (CE). The essential element identified for accessing larger market share is the ability to rapidly modify and innovate products: the competitive advantage is obtained by shifting the focus from efficiency (cost) to creativity (innovative content).
  • The 2010 CE Vision and major challenges for CE in the five main areas of the CE domain:
    Business models & Organisation, Human Aspects , I/C Technology & Infrastructure, Product/service development, Policy and Regulations.
  • The state-of-the-art of CE practice industrial applications, including lagging and leading edge CE methodologies.
  • The analysis of the gap between the current state of CE practices and the CE Vision:
    Recommendations on how to reach the CE Vision: identified solutions a major milestones

Roadmap No. 3

Deliverable D09 - Roadmap No. 3 [PDF, 441k] is the third of three roadmaps. The members of the CE-NET community over the last 2-3 years have been developing a long-term vision for Concurrent Enterprising in the form of a roadmap. Many of you have contributed to this roadmap and we would like to express our gratitude for your contribution to shaping this vision. A core group has been busy in trying to condense this into a short report. This report has been launched during the IMS conference in Lake Como, Italy, 17-19th May 2004. Thanks for your support and contributions!
