Factory Transformability: Adapting the Structures of Manufacturing

  • E. Westkämper
Chapter

Abstract

Companies in processing industries operate today in a turbulent environment. The turbulence is mainly caused by innovative technologies, the customization, and the permanent change throughout the various supply sectors. Companies can develop effective survival strategies only if they are able to continuously adapt their organizational structures [8, 12].
