Automotive industry without conveyer belt and cycle - research campus ARENA2036
The main driver within the framework of integrated industry (Industry 4.0) is a holistic and integrated resource efficiency. The production of the future is based on flexible and highly qualified staff which will operate intelligently automated processes. The future if the digital factory is distributed, decentralized and smart - and this complex production will organize itself on the base of real time information and cyber physical systems (CPS). Complexity in this environment must not only be handled, mastered and administrated but downright be operated and actively managed. In the University of Stuttgart`s cooperative research campus ARENA2036 this notion is integrated into an innovative smart research factory for lightweight automotive production.
