REsilient Multi-PLAnt NETworks

AeroDNA has been selected by Liverpool University to develop collaborative supply chain solutions as part of an EU Framework 7 Programme – Remplanet (Resilient Multi-Plant Networks). The programme involves leading European Universities including Aachen and Valencia.

The main objective of the programme is to develop systems and processes to support the collaboration of non-hierarchical manufacturing networks, characterised by non-centralised decision making.


The REMPLANET Project mission is the development of methods, guidelines and tools for the implementation of the Resilient Multi-Plant Networks Model in non-hierarchical manufacturing networks, characterised by non-centralised decision making.

A resilient organization effectively aligns its strategy, operations, management systems, governance structure, and decision-support capabilities so that it can uncover and adjust to continually changing risks, endure disruptions to its primary earnings drivers, and create advantages over less adaptive competitors.

The research will consider and balance both operational resilience and strategic resilience in the context of machinery and equipment global manufacturing networks; operational flexibility-agility, and strategic innovation-renewal. REMPLANET model and tools will focus on the integration of the customer driven innovation influence in the products and manufacturing processes design, and the responsiveness to customised market demands of the related non-hierarchical global manufacturing networks processes under a real-time non-centralised decision making context.

Theoretical research and related tools will be contrasted, validated, and enhanced through empirical cases (pilots) from different machinery and equipment enterprise networks which have multi-site and multi-nation manufacturing plants, as well as customers distributed around the globe.

EU funded project

REMPLANET is a Collaborative Project under the NMP-2008-SMALL-2 call, funded by the European Commission Seventh Framework Programme - EU FP7 Project 229333
