The intelligent production of the future (Stuttgart)
A survey on future challenges of production.

The increasing connectivity combined with the shorter innovation cycles especially in software-based systems requires products to be upgradable in order to fulfill the consumers’ expectations for the newest technology. This leads to shorter product life cycles, increased variety and volatile sales figures, which a manufacturer must react to quickly and flexibly in order to maintain a competitive edge. Production systems must therefore be able to continually rescale their output without loss of efficiency. The 15 research questions of this survey tries to understand the future challenges of companies regarding their flexibility of production systems when it comes to constantly changing volumes and variants.

Digital Transformation Assessment (Berlin)
The aim of the survey is to implement a sector-independent benchmarking service. Companies can thus evaluate their status quo in the field of digital transformation.

Digitalization offers enormous opportunities to actively shape one's own future and at the same time confronts companies with great challenges. Digital transformation describes the process of change that companies must shape in order to master digitalization. Digital transformation is a complex topic that goes far beyond pure automation or implementation of modern technologies. Value creation structures change massively within a very short time. Companies are therefore challenged to put previous business practices and strategies as well as their own processes, structures and products to the test. With the help of our self-assessments, you can determine the status of digital transformation in your company. Answering the questions takes about 10 minutes.

After you have completed the questionnaire, you will receive your company-specific evaluation online. Additionally you also have the option of registering for benchmarking to reflect your position in an international comparison.
