Factory Planning and Production Management

“Creating sustainable value creation” - that is the motto of the Factory Planning and Production Management division of Fraunhofer Austria Research GmbH. As part of our application-oriented and excellent production research, we design industrial value creation systems from the initial concept to successful implementation!

Together with our customers and partners, we develop innovative solutions for efficient, agile, resilient and resource-saving production systems with a focus on structures, processes, technologies and organization. We support companies in the digital transformation of industrial value creation through systematic technology and innovation management.

We are closely networked with other divisions. Through an integrated consideration of production and logistics as well as the order processing processes, we guarantee a consistent planning and optimization approach. In terms of holistic productivity management, we pursue a continuous and targeted further development of value creation systems and support companies on their way to world class manufacturing.
