The focus of the research and test area is on complex textile supply chains. The research includes four main aspects: (1) Horizontal and vertical cross-linking along the textile chain, (2) Self organizing logistics, self optimizing manufacturing and versatile assembly lines, (3) Smart maintenance, (4) Consideration of the role of human and the HMI in a changing production environment.
Emyployees will orchestrate manufacturing, logistics and maintenance by mobile devices and intervene where necessary. Logistic and manufacturing systems operate self-determining, i. e. they organize and optimize themselves. Demonstrators will show the versatility of manufacturing modules towards changing order situations, changing product portfolios and comstomized products.Show on map Detailed view
