Permanent changes and improvement in the factory processes and layouts create the need for highly-efficient planning methods. The Digital and Virtual Factory are promising approaches to come to modular factories, scalable models and participative planning. Paired with further technological inputs the barrier for using these Digital planning approaches will even be lowered. This paper gives an overview of the state of the art of the Digital and Virtual Factory with the focus on the requirements, the implentations and the enabler technologies for migrating them to reality.
