Abstract
In the future, flexibility will become an important competitiveness factor for companies. However, as company strucures change, so also do value-adding structures alter. Future production structures must therefore allow for continuous alterations in planning and configuration. This task cannot be mastered using traditional planning methods. A possible solution is the use of system technology for structuring companies. Furthermore, by de-centralizing and self-organizing performance units and by networking production right up to virtuial enterprises, a closer proximity to customers can be achieved.
Companies in processing industries operate today in a turbulent environemnt. This is mainly caused by technology, the globalization of markets and the permanent change in supply and demand. Effective survival strategies can only be developed if structures are adapted constantly
Structural alterations are usually caused by technical innovations. Nowadays, and in the future, electronics, information processing and communications technology are bringing about lasting structural changes. They do not only have the possibility of intelligent production systems, but also of new value-adding options. The relationship between customer and buyer will change. As a result, it will have to become possible for future production structures to be continuously re-planned and re-configured, a fact which is unachievable using traditional planning methods. One solution to this is the use of system technology for structuring companies to become complex networks of autonomous performance units spread over many companies. De-centralization, the autonomy of performance units, flexible production and assembly concepts are other elements which could lead to an incease in dynamics and a closer proximity to the market. If one begins to integrate single elements only on demand, the result is a virtual company.
