THE FACTORY OF THE FUTURE - INTEGRATED INDUSTRY
Germany needs to be strengthened as a production location to further develop its economic power. Therefore, the industry needs new solutions for cost-efficient production processes that also preserve resources. The "Integrated Industry" sector has, thus, been in the focus of many research activities at Fraunhofer for some time. Cyber-physical systems link the virtual world to objects of the real world. This creates the "Internet of things" where real products and production processes are linked to the Internet. This accelerates processes and helps to better utilize resources. However, what is decisive for the success of the integrated industry, is the human factor. With new technologies in human-machine interaction and with a comprehensive training program, Fraunhofer essentially contributes to the further development of Germany as a production location.
