In today’s environment factories constantly need to meet new demands. Apart from high mutability, social aspects as well as upcoming technological challenges need to be taken into consideration for planning and designing factories. The congress “Factory planning – next steps” in Aachen offers solutions and trends in the areas of production planning, project planning and architecture and encourages the dialogue with experts. Under the leading theme “next steps” a special focus is put on adaptable production systems, sustainable building concepts and agile planning and realisation processes.
