Abstract: MAYA aims at developing simulation methodologies and multidisciplinary tools for the design, engineering and management of CPS-based Factories, in order to strategically support production-related activities during all the phases of the factory life-cycle, from the integrated design of the product - process - production system, through the optimization of the running factory, till the dismissal/reconfiguration phase.

MAYA for Digital Continuity - MAYA em- powers the ability to maintain the digital info available all along the factory life-cycle, despite changes in purpose and tools, allow- ing data to be enriched and used as needed in that specific phase

MAYA for the Synchronization of the Digital and Real Factory - MAYA supports the convergence of physical world and virtual world, where the latter must closely mirror the first and where the former generates an unprecedented volume of data to be handled by the digital representation of the factory.

MAYA for Multidisciplinary integrated simulation and modelling - MA Y A empowers the effective virtual validation of manufacturing equipment and systems prior to actual manufacturing, thanks to integration of models and simulation results from different domains.

SUPSI was the main developer of the Centralized Support Infrastructure, that defines and articulates the interactions amongst MA Y A modules.
