Within this paper the approach of a self-organised and highly flexible labour utilisation will be presented. It displays the on-going German research project "KapaflexCy", which comprises ten industrial and science partners. Target of the research project is to define and investigate specific applications of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) in a production environment. The approach of the project "KapaflexCy" is to involve employees in the personnel planning and scheduling. A CPS will be developed, which permanently monitors the order backlog, the production environment and the actual workload. According to these conditions the CPS schedules necessary work duties. The immediate assignment of persons is self-organised by the employees by means of a matching process. Mobile communication devices together with social media elements will provide support. The described approach offers a new way to a flexible mode of labour.
