Digitally integrated Production

Fraunhofer IPK at Hannover Messe 2017

It is an ambitious vision: With digital technologies, production processes are easily adjusted to perform customized, yet rapid manufacturing – a prerequisite for profitably meeting customer demands. At Hannover Messe, we will demonstrate where the ideal solution for an enterprise can be found in the spectrum between selective process or system adaptations and overall corporate strategy addressing the entire process network. With a modular shop floor IT, process variations are forwarded directly from the service desk to the shop floor. They are tested in a digital twin to avoid conflicts and then reliably executed with cloud-based control technologies.
