One of the technical objectives of COMPOSITION is to implement, demonstrate and validate the COMPOSITION operating system in two multi-sided pilots. The first pilot in the biomedical device domain focuses on the integrated information management system in a multi-sided manufacturing process within one company. The second pilot concentrates on the interaction between different companies using the COMPOSITION ecosystem with the agent-based marketplace for collaboration, optimising logistics and other inter-factory processes.

Our evaluation framework serves as a baseline for how, when and by whom validation is going to take place and includes definition of appropriate metrics and guidelines (e.g. usability testing questionnaires, observations, etc.) for validation, refinement of the initially defined success criteria, and measurement metrics. “The methodology can be applied to other projects and we invite you to benefit from our experience”, says Helene Udsen from partner In-JeT ApS.
