The economy has been in a state of flux for years. Digital transformation, Industrie 4.0, the Internet of Things, automation and assistive robotic systems – all these are elements of a development that is changing companies and the way they manufacture. Not only major corporations are transitioning to digitized manufacturing. Small and medium sized companies and even microenterprises will not be able to get around this – nor can they afford to.
For exactly twenty-five years now, the Fraunhofer IFF has been working on technical systems and visions, which help companies overcome these and other problems and challenges and to better maximize their commercial potential.
