Volatile influences from global markets force companies to be more flexible, sustainable and efficient. The product portfolio grows while sales per product variant decrease and product lifecycles get shorter. That means frequent changes in the production processes and resources, which cause high investments and rapid growth in system complexity. Hence, robust production systems are needed, which are well prepared to operate in a volatile environment. Designing robust production systems often fails because of the deficient basis of decision-making about flexibility or standardization strategies. We present a method to design robust production systems, using demandoriented flexibilities. Particular emphasis is on the ability to directly integrate the method in a production planner’s daily work.
