Virtual Manufacturing Environment
Virtual Manufacturing Environment (VME) is an application of VCE, and focuses on virtual and collaborative design and manufacturing. Recent developments in design using commercial software made it possible to design complex systems and facilities with designers and engineers working at remote locations, often in different time zones on a 24-hour basis (similar to the way software development took place over the past decade). Integration of our Cumulus technology and VCE in combination with commercial software creates a collaborative platform that is secure through the formation of a private cloud. Information is stored in an internal cloud that can be accessed from any location. In addition, the platform provides data security, resiliency and intelligent archival. In combination with other technologies such as RISE developed by our partner M7 Technologies, we can also create a VME integrating sensors and machines to automatically feed designs into the manufacturing process with built in metrology and quality control.
