Looking back: Opening Ceremony of the International Center for Networked, Adaptive Production

What does Industrie 4.0 offer you and what do you need to do to ensure that your company can benefit from it? On April 25, 2018, the three Fraunhofer Institutes in Aachen, Fraunhofer Institutes for Production Technology IPT, for Laser Technology ILT and for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME, together with other experts from industry and research, showed some answers to this question as to which new approaches to solutions from information technology can actually be used to achieve the transformation to Industrie 4.0 at the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft's booth at the Hannover Messe.

During the opening ceremony, we intended to take the opportunity to unveil a new platform for testing and developing future-oriented technologies for

  • forecasting in adaptive process chains,
  • the digital twin,
  • big data analytics,
  • 5G-data transfer as well as
  • cloud technologies and edge computing in networked production environments.

By becoming part of our community you can help to shape selected development projects, network with other pioneers of Industrie 4.0 and foster a lively exchange of ideas and experience with companies and scientists at the interface between IT and production technology.
