All manufacturers are looking for shorter processing times, faster logistics and new technologies with the aim of optimizing production processes and work flows. In order to stay competitive they need to cut costs, streamline procedures, shorten production start-up times, improve department organization, and optimize production methods. Modern information technology can be a decisive help. Computer-assisted methods, modeling tools and software provide the necessary development, planning and production control support.
