Focal topic Flexible Production
If you want to compete in the dynamic world markets, flexibility is key – in every aspect. Smaller batches, more specialized products, faster cycles - in the end, the quality needs to be right. The digital integration of the value chain makes it possible.
Quick and flexible performance means to reduce complexity of production and this can be achieved best with modular plants. Modularizing monolithic plants as an afterthought is one of the big challenges of today’s process technology. To make matters even more complex there are high demands concerning automation to get the process up and running quickly in terms of plug-and-produce. The focal topic “flexible production” highlights the current status of industry 4.0 and shows where the market is headed.
