Abstract

In today’s ever faster changing economy it is crucial to adapt the production of a company in shorter intervals. Many change processes fail, often due to the resistance of the workforce. Approaches on the field of change management address this issue, but do often not consider the special circumstances in production. Learning factories are designed to meet these requirements, but usually focus on the aspect of qualification. This paper describes how change processes in production can be supported by learning factories by offering a test bed for new ideas, qualification and communication through participation.
