Through transparent and networked logistics processes, requirements can be better planned, delivery routes get optimized and inventories become significantly reduced. The increase in efficiency and flexibility is the result of all efforts within the framework of Logistics 4.0. But how far have companies really progressed in this process so far and what challenges do companies face today on the way to implementing Logistics 4.0?
Wafers are the basis of modern microchips. The production of these silicon components is technically highly demanding. Wafers are also produced in state-of-the-art semiconductor plants in the heart of Germany.
For a long time, empty production halls were a symbol of the change in industrial production due to technological progress. But digital technologies, with their increasingly shorter innovation cycles, have no longer just taken over manual work that is easily automated. Trends such as robotics and artificial intelligence are competing more and more with people in more complex fields of activity. The working world of engineers is also not unaffected by the digital transformation.
Durable and fast trains, aircrafts and cars are just as much a matter of course for our everyday life today as well as well-working IT with fast Internet connections. High-performance fluids often create the basis for this.
Whether noise reduction, passenger comfort, aerodynamics or assistance system technology - the future of aviation promises numerous technical innovations and exciting developments. The largest civilian fleet of research aircraft and helicopters operated by the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) is deployed worldwide throughout the year to record data on technical focal points such as wake vortices, aircraft bypass, noise emissions or cabin ventilation and to test new systems.
