Core facility (CF)

Short Description

The main areas of the TU Wien Pilot Factory Industry 4.0 focuses on the discrete, multi-variant series production up to the production in very small quantities (lot size 1, “high-mix and low-volume”). All aspects of product creation from design to assembly are included in an integrative approach. The topics that are addressed both in research and in training, in the context of demonstration scenarios, are dedicated to current issues from the industry and are intended to represent possible solutions.

PRODUCTION OF INDUSTRIAL GOODS WILL BE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT IN THE FUTURE than it was up to now. IN THE PILOT FACTORY AT TU Wien, RESEARCH IS Conducted about how intelligent production works.

Manufacturing products today is more than just setting up a machine and pressing the big green button. Industrial production is becoming increasingly complicated and interconnected. In the future, individual work steps will no longer be looked at separately from one another in production, but all areas of production will be interconnected through information technology and coordinated with one another. The TU Wien is now taking an important step into the new age of production – in the Pilot Factory at TU Wien research and testing is carried out to determine how the industry of tomorrow should look like.
