Change forces manufacturers to a permanent adaptation of their factories. Therefore, factory structures, which are able to be adapted and configured according to the challenges of the turbulent environment, are essential to preserve the competitive ability. Change drivers, coming from the markets, products and production, and their effects on the technological segments and capacities of a factory are of specific interest regarding long-term strategic planning tasks. In this paper, a planning and optimization method for systematic structure planning is presented. It is intended to synchronize the developments in product and production for operating at the optimum of economic efficiency.
