Today, digital methods, processes and IT tools are indispensable in the product life cycle, from design to recycling. They help to plan and control product development times, as well as product quality and costs. The design of tomorrow’s factories requires robust virtual planning and simulation in factory planning: Intelligent planning methods, secure virtual operation and novel haptic interactions in factory prototyping.
