Production Engineering Cluster

This cluster is set to become one of the largest research laboratories for production technology and Industry 4.0 in Europe. The research focus here will be digitally integrated production. Industry and science will explore the possibilities of Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things for the production development process and cyber-physically integrated production. Central topics are:

  • Near realtime simulation of complex production chains by way of digital shadowing,
  • “Learning” factories with big data usage,
  • Use concepts for cloud technologies for engineering-based governing of production controls.
