Part of the acatech POSITION PAPER book series


Cyber-physical systems contribute to finding answers to key challenges of our society and are highly relevant for numerous industries and fields of application. Cyber-physical systems provide companies with support in process optimization and therefore also in cost and time saving, and they provide help in saving energy, thus reducing CO2 emissions. For private users, the benefits of cyber-physical systems are predominantly in a higher level of comfort, for example in assistance with mobility, in networked safety, in individual medical care and for older people in the field of assisted living.

    “Vielmehr ist es erforderlich, sich von der Vorstellung eines Produktionsunternehmens als Fabrik im Sinne einer rechtlich selbständigen, zentralisierten Einheit zu lösen, um auch unkonventionelle Entwicklungsmodelle zu ermöglichen.” [In fact, it is necessary to separate oneself from the vision of a production company as a factory in the sense of a legally independent, centralised unit, in order to facilitate unconventional development models as well] (Wulfsberg/Redlich 2011, p. V.)Google Scholar
