Fraunhofer IPA identifies suitable Industrie 4.0 use cases, develops technological solutions and implements digital production with you.

Digital transformation focuses on more than just technological aspects. As part of change management, the employees affected by digitization and their needs are also addressed. Once the projects have been implemented, the challenge - especially for larger companies with multiple production sites - is to roll out the developed solutions efficiently and precisely to the various production sites, which each have their own unique general conditions.

Our interdisciplinary team helps you systematically select suitable use cases, collaborates with you to develop technological solutions and implement digital production, and provides assistance throughout the course of the project, from conception and implementation right through to roll-out of the solutions.
