The restructuring towards a fair and ecological production system presents companies with new and comprehensive challenges, in the solution of which cross-industry cooperation offers great potential. The Working Group Sustainable Production provides a forum for exchange and discussion in the application context of manufacturing industry with regard to current trends, solutions and developments in the context of sustainability and circular economy.
In contrast to a seminar, this working group brings together companies for an intensive exchange of ideas. Two one-day and one two-day event are held each year, each of which has a specific thematic focus and is prepared with impulse lectures, case studies, surveys and benchmarks by the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL) of RWTH Aachen University. In addition, the participants will be actively involved in the further development of topics, the identification of relevant questions or the execution of studies between the events. The working group especially addresses decision makers who are concerned with the further development of their own company in order to lead it into a sustainable future.
