DThe Lürssen shipyard works continuously on the further development of design and production processes as well as on the development of innovative products. These developments are part of internal and publicly funded projects.
In recent years, Lürssen has been involved in numerous collaborative projects as part of the maritime research program. In the area of production technology, Lürssen was involved in the projects PORSPER and ShipLight.
At the academic chair for Production Systematics at the “Werkzeugmaschinenlabor“ WZL of the RWTH Aachen University, the scientists have a focus on the design and dimensioning of structures and processes in production.
Based on the experience gained from numerous consulting and research projects, the WZL of the RWTH Aachen also supports industrial companies in the consistent implementation of a sustainable production strategy and an efficient value-added structure.
The WZL has already and is currently carrying out research projects in the field of fault management and real-time production planning. These are part of the “Internet of Production” research cluster, which the project described here can be based on.
