Industry challenge: To further develop manufacturing processes to keep pace with the products of the future.
- Today and tomorrow’s consumers demand increasingly customised and personalised products, which requires a great deal of flexibility from the production process.
- Flexible production is able to handle volume changes, different variants, new materials and new combinations of materials.
- We need new knowledge, innovative manufacturing methods and automation solutions.
- Automation and digitalisation contribute to flexibility by, for example, simulating or integrating systems to achieve decentralised management and monitoring of the production process.
