Abstract

The increasing uncertainty in the markets will continue to pose a significant challenge for production companies. High changeability in production systems is becoming a strategic key factor for handling dynamic demand behavior and constant innovation. One of the main challenges for production companies is to prepare the human for future change. This paper provides a framework for the design of systemic changeability in a production system with the focus on the human. Therefore, an approach to a learning factory, which aims to prepare employees for change projects in their companies, is presented.
