Centre for Virtual Manufacturing (CeVIP) was founded in 2006, at Faculty of Engineering in Kragujevac, within the project titled “Virtual Manufacturing Support for Enterprises in Serbia”. CeVIP has necessary resources for application of innovative technologies of virtual engineering (virtual manufacturing, CAD/CAM/CAE, virtual reality, quality and performance control of CNC machines, etc.). It realizes joint research projects with Serbian enterprises and offers innovative approach and services in product, processes and tools development and their optimization, contributing in this way to the increase of their innovative potential and competitiveness on the market. Strategic networking with enterprises, leading research institutions and relevant ministries within the VMnet network makes CEVIP renowned and reliable service provider in research and innovative environment in Serbia.


•     Realization of scientific – research projects in the areas such as: virtual manufacturing, modelling and FEM/FVM numerical simulations and optimizations of technological processes, application of CAD/CAM/CAE technologies, 3D visualization of products and processes through application of virtual reality
•     Development of VMnet network for effective knowledge and technology transfer and provision of high-tech services  
•     Provision of    services and consulting – elaboration of feasibility studies, consulting in introduction of VM technologies, simulation of tool production, generating NC code, testing of CNC machines performances, etc. 
•     Realization of international projects (TEMPUS, FP6, SEE, WUS, EUREKA, GIZ, EAR, etc.) 
•     Organization and realization of courses for knowledge innovation, seminars, workshops and trainings
