The manufacturing industry is entering a new era in which new ICT technologies and collaboration applications are integrated with traditional manufacturing practices and processes to increase flexibility in manufacturing, mass customization, increase speed, better quality and to improve productivity. Virtual factories are key building blocks for Manufacturing 2.0, enabling the creation of new business ecosystems. In itself, the concept of virtual factories is a major expansion upon virtual enterprises in the context of manufacturing, which only integrates collaborative business processes from different enterprises to simulate, model and test different design options, to evaluate performance, thus to save time-to-production. Creating virtual factories requires the integration of product design processes, manufacturing processes, and general collaborative business processes across factories and enterprises. An important aspect of this integration is ensure straightforward compatibility between the machines, products, processes, related products and services, as well as any descriptions of those.
