Paper Title:
Geometry-Flexible Production – a Production Engineering Challenge
  Abstract

Today's automotive manufacturers are required to meet ever greater demands for increased flexibility due to decreasing batch sizes. Solutions to meet these demands will bring about far-reaching changes to the mass productions methods which currently dominate automotive manufacturing. In addition to the current need for sheet metal components, such trends will also have an effect on assembly and joining techniques used. The paper describes the challenge for production engineering resulting from current and future market demands.
