Chapter

Abstract

In this chapter, the variety of the learning factory concept is illustrated by interspersing many practical examples from existing learning factories around the globe. The diversity of the existing learning factories is shown along seven dimensions of the learning factory system. Morphological models within the dimensions sharpen the systematic view on learning factory systems.
