The challenge for european manufacturing organisations
Die Herausforderung für Europäische Produktionsunternehmen
European industries are facing massive challenges from global competitors such as USA and Japan. Optimization of production processes, especially their informational aspects, is becoming a crucial part in this race. The optimization is best based on cooperation and standards, such as provided e.g. by KCIM of DIN. EXPRIT/CIME is contributing to increased cooperation among European individuals and companies, while at the same time supporting the implementation of standardization results. Future challenges for Europe will not be overcome by copying foreign concepts, but only through development of new approaches such as the Fractal Factory of the European Engineering Community.
