Innovative production technology must be able to efficiently utilise human and material resources in order to secure production locations. Ever shorter product life cycles conflict with the necessity of an extended service life of the production systems required for the manufacture of products. Flexibly adaptable, reconfigurable as well as self-organising equipments are a key to solving this conflict. Men with their specific technological know-how have to be integrated into production in a newly defined role. The objective of research and development at Fraunhofer IPK is to develop innovative technologies which help companies to use their production resources more efficiently.
