While many different product protection measures have been developed and established in recent years, there is still a great risk posed by the leakage of knowledge in production. These risks are often downplayed by companies, although they directly relate to their own production and engineering know-how. The various company-specific protection measures in production span a wide range, and they can be applied both to production relocation (e.g. to China) and to existing facilities. A systematic approach for identifying critical damage scenarios, and the methodically supported development and selection of individual protection measures are required for effective protection of critical company know-how in production.
