Abstract:The production industry is undergoing rapid change. A more volatile market together with a shorter-lived window of opportunity put pressure on the sector to adapt and become more flexible. A new trend emerged, which some call industry 4.0, which is marked by big data collection and digitalization. The Fraunhofer Project Center is planning on creating a matrix-production shopfloor which implements these new technologies. Many contemporary systems are not built for the high flexibility of matrix-production; therefore, a new type of system is required. In this thesis a new software system is developed that can support a matrix production shopfloor. The integration between planning, organizing, tracking and initiation is the main focus of the new system. The result of this thesis is a prototype which forms the basis of the envisioned end product. Some features of this end product are outlined and evaluated. The prototype uses a novel approach to modelling the production process which was received well by the users. With this foundation different charts and statistics can be generated. These statistics help the planner to optimize the matrix-production system beforehand, resulting in a more efficient system. The prototype and envisioned end product can serve as a starting point for further development as they were received positively by stakeholders and users.
