AD Design Guidelines for Implementing I4.0 Learning Factories
MetadataShow full item record
Learning Factories (LF) are becoming increasingly popular to teach students, how the methods and concepts learned in theory work in a hands-on and industry-related environment. In recent years, many learning factories have been established and experiments have been carried out in the application of practical learning methods. In most cases, these consist of demonstration lessons as well as the opportunity to design, test and optimize production systems and processes in practice. With the introduction of industry 4.0 (I4.0) also many learning factories have to adapt their education model as well as their offer in order to meet the expectations of students and companies. So far, there are only few works dealing with this topic and providing adequate design guidelines. This paper therefore aims to use a systematical and structured way to develop such design guidelines for I4.0 learning factories. As research method, Axiomatic Design is applied by translating students' and companies' needs into functional requirements and then into a set of design parameters/guidelines.
