Industrie 4.0 – flexible transparent manufacturing

Fraunhofer IPK at Hannover Messe 2016

Manufacturing small and fluctuating batch sizes while still keeping costs stable is an increasing demand in industry. Yet if production becomes more flexible, processes become more complex, increasing the danger of unmanageable procedures making production inefficient. At Hannover Messe 2016, Fraunhofer IPK will demonstrate in close cooperation with partners from industry, how digitally integrated technologies facilitate transparency in flexibly organized production. The possibilities offered by novel technologies will redefine the tasks and work of production employees along a process chain from corporate-wide job management through manufacturing organization to work on individual machines.
