How to Take Advantage of Digitized Manufacturing

How can manufacturing data provide an economic benefit for manufacturing industry?


Challenge and Motivation

  • Currently it is still open how to achieve economic benefits by digitalization in manufacturing
  • Manufacturing is characterized by various data sources and system providers
  • A concept for system providers and their role in digitized manufacturing system is unclear


  • Identification and evaluation of the potential economic benefits of digitized manufacturing
  • Description of needs and requirements for system suppliers for digitized manufacturing


  • End-user centric approach – Highlight benefits of digitized manufacturing and identification of business cases by using the example of 5-axis milling
  • System provider centric approach – Conception of a practical digitized manufacturing environment
  • Aggregation and demonstration – Evaluation of the approaches in the manufacturing environment at Fraunhofer IPT
