Digitalization is changing industrial production and is offering huge potential for producing companies. One effect resulting from the increasing presence of information and communication technology in production is the increasing quantity and quality of production feedback data. However, only collecting large amounts of data of data does not lead to high logistical performance and low logistical costs. It is essential to acquire the right data with as little operating expenses as possible, to analyze the acquired data target-oriented and to present the results user-oriented, so that concrete actions can be derived. In practice, this is a challenge for producing companies. To demonstrate the opportunities in this field of action, a concept was developed at the Institute of Production Systems and Logistics (IFA) (Hannover, Germany) and, furthermore, implemented in the IFA learning factory. This paper starts with a short introduction of the IFA learning factory. After that, the paper presents the developed concept in detail, describing the PPC system, the data acquisition using RFID, an order processing support system using ESL and the (real-time) data analysis. In the end a summarizing conclusion is given underlining the importance of an integrated concept for data acquisition and utilization.
