Flexible production

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.
