Shaping the production of the future
Global raw material supplies are shrinking while the cost for energy production and energy supply is constantly increasing. The field of production is especially affected by these issues since it is bound to natural resources and has to adapt to an increasingly volatile energy market. Main future trends, including the advancing digitalization of production, the continuous improvement of resource and energy efficiency, the role of humans in the production of the future and new concepts for factories and logistics lead to the question of how to shape industrial value added processes in the future.
Together with partners from industry and science we research new technologies, processes, methods, measuring technologies and planning approaches for the target sectors of plant engineering, mechanical engineering and automotive engineering – from the idea to prototypes to serial production.
