Part of the INTERFACER project is developing Fab City OS Core (OS = Operating System), an innovative federated open source platform to share and collaborate on Open Source Hardware projects. Fab City OS Core provides innovative tools to support the complexity of a distributed accounting system for flexible collaboration processes. It leverages crypto technology to empower participants with privacy, transparency and data ownership and can be adopted to implement fair and equitable compensation mechanisms. The technological basis is Reflow OS majorly developed by dyne.org in a EU-funded project which enables modeling of economic exchanges to promote trustworthy circularity at a generic level. We focus this featureset on workflows related to Open Source Hardware and production workflows. Part of this backbone is also a digital product passport (DPP) with two dimensions, namely to track and trace material and design flows. Fab City OS will allow designers to exchange and contribute to each other’s designs and bring manufacturing and design closer together with a set of suitable user interfaces. The software development will also be accompanied by a policy and user research process resulting in an economic framework.
