Fast changes in customer needs and continuously new product trends define increasing requirements for the flexibility and productivity of modern industrial plants. Production systems of the future are able to handle the increasing complexity and the shorter product life cycles. Their agility offers new opportunities to the companies. The concept of production modules helps management and planners not only to achieve the targets of high productivity, short delivery times and high quality but also to minimise the risks of wrong sales forecasts, high fixed costs, low flexibility for variants and quantities and liquidity problems in financing.
