Christian Fries has been working as a research assistant in the Factory Planning and Production Management department at Fraunhofer IPA since November 2018. In research and industrial projects, he deals with topics related to production, logistics, factory planning and production planning and control.
In his contribution to SCAP, he presents a new production concept, the "Fluid Production System (FPS)". Within the FPS, production and logistics processes are continuously evaluated and reconfigured in order to adapt the functionality of these processes to the actual requirements. This avoids waste and increases efficiency.
