Survey on problem solving in manufacturing companies

With an online survey, Fraunhofer IPK would like to capture current challenges in systematic problem solving in manufacturing companies. The focus is on problems of unknown cause that cannot be solved immediately and for which various procedures have been established in practice.

In production, deviations tend to occur between the actual state and a planned target state. If the cause is unknown, usually a problem-solving process is started.

This survey is aimed at employees, technical experts and managers from manufacturing and manufacturing-adjacent companies. The survey is anonymous and can be answered until November 12, 2021. The results will then be published by Fraunhofer IPK together with some qualitative interviews.
