Examples of the application

To find out which new approaches in information technology can lead the way towards Industrie 4.0 and which requirements must be met, is the aim of the three Aachen-based Fraunhofer institutes for Production Technology IPT, for Laser Technology ILT and for Molecular Biology and Applies Ecology IME, who are cooperating with the RWTH Aachen University and renowned industrial partners in the International Center for Networked, Adaptive Produktion (ICNAP).

The following application examples were developed in the publicly funded project "Leistungszentrum - Vernetzte, Adaptive Produktion" with the kind support of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.


Digital twins in product life cycles


Predictive analytics for adaptive process chains


Big data analytics in complex production


Edge computing and cloud technologies in smart manufacturing networks


5G data transmission in production systems


Recording and synchronization of machine and sensor data


Data analysis in battery module production
