Kurzbeschreibung (Abstract)

Digitalization and Industrie 4.0 are shaping more and more industrial daily routine. As a re- sult, planning, operation and control of manufacturing processes are increasingly underta- ken by “flexible automation”. This advanced category of automation exceeds expectations in productivity under uncertain operating conditions. Coping with uncertainty in manufacturing processes so far was a domain controlled by qualified operators and process planners. By implementing automated devices with this capability in the manufacturing environment, a drastically increased productivity can be expected. On the other hand, huge concerns about the future of qualified machine operators and maintainance personel are raised. Against this background, an analysis of automation opportunities and challenges seems to be urgently required. This analysis should reveal the possible area of flexible automation in manufacturing processes and help to identify existing gaps between targeted fully auto- mated manufacturing processes and the current capabilities of automated manufacturing. The analysis should also disclose the benefit of autonomous manufacturing systems for flexible automation. Metal forming processes have the reputation of being highly dependent on the operator´s and process planner´s experiences. So far, these employees are mainly responsible to com- plete a manufacture task successfully even if deviations between targeted and actual con- ditions exist. Therefore, industrial working environments in the metal forming industry might be especially affected by flexible automation. The article at hand will introduce a classification of automation and compare the current status of automated manufacturing with fully automated solutions. Examples from metal forming technologies are used to illustrate the capabilities of automated manufacturing systems at different levels. Based on the classification and the evaluation of the current status, perspectives for industrial environments and future research and developments be- come visible.
