Production Systems (PRO)

Motivation and aim

Shorter product life-cycles, diverse variety, increasing pace of innovations and increasing complexity in production technology place increased demands on the industry. Consequently, entrepreneurial decisions bear high risks, which in turn requires not only new forms of teamwork but also for the business network to be viewed as one whole production system. The core components processes, organizations and resources must permit a high development and innovation capability corresponding to the dynamic company demands. Therefore, the aim of the production systems department is the development of methods and tools for target orientated designing and optimization of quicker, more robust and more efficient production systems. New approaches will be developed according to individual industrial requirements starting from strategic business planning and organization right upto production control, and this being transformed into a company's success.
