Fraunhofer IPT has developed an innovative software concept for a digitalized glass optics production by means of precision glass molding and the belonging process chain. Thus, production data is used comprehensively and can be exploited conveniently for process development, production ramp-up and serial production. One striking innovation is the possibility to run part-specific simulation leading to a ""Digital Twin"" of every lens produced. The benefit for business is to enable advanced process developments, acceleration of production ramp-up and improved productivity in serial production. The concept is briefly introduced in conjunction with the current development state. Three possible use-cases for digitalized optics production are given and the paper concludes with further development steps necessary to implement the concept.
