New Business Models for Machine Tools
Current business models in tool mesh construction are only capable of exploiting the potential of digitalized production to a limited extent. On the way to new business models, the first step in the expert lecture will therefore be to identify the main technological enablers for new business models. With the help of experts, who provide their industry-suitable solutions for the respective enablers, promising model examples are discussed in the second step, on the basis of which case-specific business models of the future are derived.
In addition to the central challenge in the implementation of an integrated data management, the necessary paradigm shift in the corporate philosophy is addressed. The regulated exchange of information between the participants enables the contribution of the respective core competencies and thus the increase of the productivity of the overall system. In return, the individual participant can use the availability of additional information created by the participation to increase his technological know-how. The engineering knowledge underlying models, e.g. for predicting machine or component behavior depending on the respective application, form the basis of new business models in the production environment. Internal company targets such as increased flexibility in production and higher availability with increased capacity utilization can be achieved and guaranteed.
