Sustainability and resilient value creation networks are becoming increasingly important in the automotive industry. Major challenges arise from the economic intention to enable the highest possible system effectiveness while providing flexibility in terms of production technology at the same time. The forward-looking paper is to show possible courses of action for resolving these contradictions and achieving the goals regarding emissions/energy/material monitoring. This requires a holistic view of value creation networks and production systems, without overly abstracting the manufacturing technologies. In the mission that is supported by the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts, academia and industry discuss technologies and ideas and develop a forward-looking white paper for the sustainable, digitalized, and resilient production of the future. Focus topics, innovation drivers, and obstacles to implementation are to be identified for this, among other things.
