The Provisioning Phase is the time that is needed for the formalised and semantic-based way of describing factories, their services and their properties. Examples of such properties are their location, quality standards, regulations, costs, material or machine capabilities. This provisioning step also includes the definition of data formats for exchanging information between factories.
The provisioning phase is a part of the ADVENTURE Adoption (and NOT a part of the Virtual Factory Lifecycle).
