We suggest one company to apply for one training.

Target Group

This training was developed for managers and engineers who seek for potentials of automation while maintaining flexibility.

Objectives and Content

The increasing demand for customization, shortened product lift-cycles and increasing labor cost raise new challenges for production systems. Flexible systems are needed, that can adapt to these changing requirements and achieve similar cost efficiency as traditional lean production systems. Scalable Automation allows a quick adaption of the automation level of an assembly system. Enablers for scalable automation are introduced in this course. Special attention is paid to proper task allocation between human operators and Collaborative Robots (Cobots).

Why this training is very important for your career and for your company?
