Five megatrends driving the production systems of tomorrow

The revolutionary and radical change in our production processes will be driven by digitalization, demographic changes, mass customization, scarcity of resources and shifts in economic power.

Those who understand these megatrends and act accordingly will be able to turn these changes into opportunities.

Learn about the five global trends driving the future of robotics and manufacturing.

The development of future production landscapes is heavily influenced by megatrends.

Three key factors for success in tomorrow’s global manufacturing industry

People, technology and adaptation: These key factors will determine whether your company will keep pace with a changing environment. Learn more about the key factors explained by industrial robotics expert Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dirk Jacob.

  • Adaptation

    Your company’s ability to adapt and the flexibility of its processes and technologies will determine whether it can keep up with the pace of technological change. To remain competitive in times of dynamic market trends, you should be investing more heavily in open interfaces and networked ecosystems. These are the keys to establishing a thriving culture of innovation and the basis for needs-based adaptations and modernizations, functional enhancements and continuous refinement.

  • People

    Sustainable production landscapes need people – both in developmental and operational roles. Take your employees with you on your journey into the future. The positive effects of flexible and networked productions systems will only be felt once they can be set up, operated and refined easily by your employees.

    Learn more about the key factor “People”

  • Technology

    By combining Operational Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT), we are able to push the existing boundaries of production landscapes. The Industrial Internet of Things, AI in manufacturing, Big Data and the Cloud are creating brand-new, high-quality opportunities for production companies.
