The paper presents the concept and the current state of development of a modular, decentralized and digital learning factory. In the future, the learning factory shall enable students to create and evaluate different factory layouts. For researchers, the factory shall represent an environment to develop and evaluate new concepts and technologies related to Industry 4.0. Beside the presentation of the factory modules and their setup, we present a control and communication strategy allowing the creation and operation of any preferred factory layout. In addition, we briefly describe a discrete event simulation model and an emulation model for virtual commissioning.
