Cities are adopting urban manufacturing practices by producing the goods close to conglomerates of humans and their living areas. Production takes place in city areas with optimize production processes. The burden on resources is minimised by creating production networks and optimizing capacity balancing. This practice is seen as reducing burden on resources, boosting innovation and offering a better quality of life. Ultraefficiency concept is introduced to achieve sustainability in efficiency and make processes economically better. Some cases taken from Stuttgart region provide further insight to implementation of this concept and the way the simulation and its long term evaluation is planned.
