The work carried out by humans in industrial production is in a constant state of change. Industrial work & production systems comprise human interaction, technology and organization as well as their design in different dimensions. Megatrends such as demographic change, globalization and personalization are lastingly changing the face of industrial production. Through the digital transformation of industrial production (Industrie 4.0), a whole new range of production work scenarios are evolving.
At Fraunhofer IPA, we conduct research on digital transformation methods and technologies and their impact on people in the work systems of the future. We inform interested parties about the technological solutions available. As experts in digital methods and technologies, we design human-centered assistance systems for the production work of tomorrow.
