About us

The Process Learning Factory CiP is an innovative education and training center in which the most important methods for designing efficient production processes have been taught since May 2007.

Since then, more than 4,000 students and over 2,000 employees of industrial companies have been trained and further educated. The practice-oriented training courses are based on the complete value chain of a company, which begins with the receipt of raw materials and extends to the shipping process of finished goods. In addition to the operation and further development of the Process Learning Factory, the working group also deals with a wide range of research issues in the context of lean production.

The topic of digitalization of production processes is becoming increasingly important and various Industry 4.0 use cases have already been implemented in the Process Learning Factory. Since March 2016, the Process Learning Factory CiP has formed the core of the Mittelstand Digital Center Darmstadt (MDZ) and prepares medium-sized companies for the challenges of digitalization.

In addition, the research group supports companies on site with their daily challenges. Typical industry projects here include the supervision of improvement projects in pilot areas of assembly, machining or intralogistics, on-site training on selected topics or coaching of employees, such as in the introduction of a shopfloor management.
