Especially the manufacturing industry is in a dynamic environment. The most relevant economic barometer for the manufacturing industry is the automotive industry as a core industry and the largest employer in Germany. Digital transformation can be understood as an opportunity to enhance the efficiency by for example a cooperative value creation.
