Handmade in Germany — Manufactory 4.0

German manu­fac­to­ries enjoy an inter­na­tional repu­ta­tion. Whether porce­lain, watches, organs or writing uten­sils — the crafts­man­ship has its origin in the tradi­tional craft training in Central Europe, which belongs to the imma­te­rial cultural heritage. However, in the 21st century, the funda­mental processes of change in digi­tal­i­sa­tion and glob­al­i­sa­tion are clearly percep­tible for every indi­vidual. Manu­fac­to­ries also have to rein­vent them­selves in the face of the world market: They are focusing on future tech­nolo­gies and are trying to combine the vision of a “Manu­fac­tory 4.0” with the classic self-image of work­shops. This results in glob­ally networking compa­nies that are oriented towards the human dimen­sion and are committed to sustain­ability in their produc­tion. The book “Hand­made in Germany. Manu­fac­tory 4.0.” gives an insight into the prac­tice and future visions of the most impor­tant German manu­fac­turers.
