Simulation Game Industrie 4.0 at Trumpf
In cooperation with Trumpf, scientists at Fraunhofer IPA have developed a simulation game that makes employees fit for the challenges of Industrie 4.0.
Today’s manufacturing companies are faced with the rising demand for individual products. In the manufacturing industry, this is reflected in increasing numbers of variants with decreasing batch sizes right down to personalized products with a batch size of 1. Manual production planning and control methods are only able to meet these demands to a limited extent. This situation poses major problems for many companies without suitable digital tools. In this interactive simulation game, the participants become familiar with the changes in production planning and control brought about by Industrie 4.0. They can experience these changes for themselves by assembling simple robots.
