wbk Institute of Production Science

News from the wbk 2020

We are very pleased to have advanced many exciting topics that were also reported in the media in 2020.

Here are some excerpts on media reports about our research projects in 2020 (external links). We are particularly proud of an article in the New York Times on the topic of electric mobility, in which our institute director Prof. Fleischer was quoted: 

The New York Times: The Age of Electric Cars Is Dawning Ahead of Schedule

The topic of electromobility keeps people in science and industry busy. For example, our research project AgiloDrive was reported here:

AutomobilProduktion: KIT wants to enable more flexible production of electric motors

ElektronikPraxis: Flexible and Economical Production of Electric Motors

Our new research focus "Sustainable Production" also met with great interest in 2020, for example here:

Industrieanzeiger: KIT Researches for Careful Use of Resources

MaschinenMarkt: KIT Founds Cross-Sectional Department "Sustainable Production

The big new topic "value stream kinematics" is to revolutionize the production landscape and is taking more and more shape for us. We are very pleased to see reports such as this one:

IT Production: Combining productivity and flexibilit

Industrie: Value stream kinematics to revolutionize production landscape

We thank you for publishing the articles!
