Production and work design
Our research topic is the working system with its inherent processes, socio-technical elements and their interaction in the production network. This includes in particular the organization of work, workplace and assembly structure design, internal material supply as well as competence and personnel development.

The research objective of the PAG Group is to derive design rules for the development and interaction of people, technology, information and organisation in order to create robust, adaptable, efficient and performance-enhancing structures on the shop floor.

Ongoing research projects:
- GeProMe - Entscheidungshilfe für produzierende KMU zur optimalen Gestaltung des Produktionssystems bei schwankenden Nachfragemengen
- MiWEB - Identifizierung mitarbeiterindividueller Weiterbildungsbedarfe und Konzipierung technischer Weiterbildungsmaßnahmen
In the course of lectures we teach methods for planning, design and evaluation of production and work systems. In this context, students are shown the essential success factors in designing work and production systems. Among other things, they are introduced to the "lean philosophy". The learned methods and tools are further deepened in application-oriented exercises, some of which take place in the institute's learning factory.
With our models, methods and tools we support companies in the efficient and performance-enhancing design of their production and work systems. Both the present and future requirements for manufacturing and assembly processes are taken into account.
Our approach is characterized by a strong integration of our employees into the conception and implementation phase as well as a consistent orientation towards the objectives of the companies. In addition, we offer companies the opportunity to qualify their specialists and executives in the application of the models, methods and tools we use.
