Article
Kürzer werdende Produkt- und Technologiezyklen und komplexe Produktionsumfelder führen zu einer zunehmenden Dynamisierung von Fabriken. Die damit ein- hergehende häufige Veränderung der Prozess-, Organisations- und letztlich Kommunikationsstrukturen erfordern eine kontinuierliche und schnelle Reorganisation von Schnittstellen. Erfolgreiche Fabriken...
Conference Paper
While growing, organizations as well as regional and urban systems have to master an increasing complexity of elements and processes. Usually, this comes parallel with a dynamization of the environment and stakeholder networks. Together, these factors build a huge network-system with a sensitive stability that has to be balanced by smart communicat...
Conference Paper
Today, business organizations as well as regional and urban systems have to grow smart as well as sustainable and should, associated therewith, develop an intelligent dynamic. Short technology cycles, complex stakeholder networks and global competitions are just a few examples for factors requiring dynamic and retaining it in growth. But how can th...
Article
Die zunehmende Dynamisierung des Produktionsumfeldes führt dazu, dass Fabriken permanenten Veränderungen unterliegen. Vor diesem Hintergrund ist es eine zentrale Herausforderung der Fabrikplanung, Fabriken kontinuierlich den Anforderungen anzupassen.

The first part of the article presents current challenges to transportation and logistics management under the condition of changing retail and freight structures in the urban context. It lines out the necessity of a holistic approach recognizing divergent demands from transporation and logistics, ecology, and urbanism. As a center piece towards a...
Article
The growing dynamics of the production environment results in plants which are subject to permanent change. Against this background, it is a central challenge of factory planning, to adapt factories to the require ments continuously. The additional adaptation of communi-cation structures is to becoming a factor of success. In this paper, a concept...
Chapter
Arata Isozaki ist weltweit als Schöpfer spektakulärer Entwürfe und Bauten bekannt. Dahinter musste bisher sein theoretisches Werk zurücktreten. Zu Unrecht, wie dieser Band belegt, der erstmals Isozakis vielschichtige Gedankenwelt in deutscher Übersetzung zugänglich macht und über die Architektur hinaus feinsinnige Einblicke in die japanische Gegenw...
Article
Kurzfassung Man kann die Geschäftsarten des produzierenden Gewerbes (Produkt-, System- und Anlagengeschäft) modellhaft nach dem Verhältnis von Wissensanwendung und Wissensgenerierung ordnen. Den höchsten Anteil an der Wissensgenerierung hat dabei das Anlagengeschäft. Die Wissensgenerierung findet sowohl in der Prozessoptimierung als auch in der Pro...
Article
It is possible to distinguish between several types of industry (products business, systems business, plant business) after the ratio of the knowledge creation and the application of knowledge. Within the range of these modes, in our entity relationship model the highest proportion of knowledge creating processes can be assumed at the plant busines...
Thesis
Komplexität ist ein genuin architektonisches Problem. Der Begriff von Architektur als einer universellen Praxis bzw. ganzheitlichen Erkenntnisweise enthält bereits im Kern den Begriff 'Komplexität'. Beide Konzepte fallen weithin zusammen – Architektur kann damit als spezifische Denkform des Komplexen betrachtet werden. Das in der Arbeit aufgezeigte...
Chapter
Das Uhrwerk einer Girard-Perregaux nur als „Getriebe“ zu bezeichnen, wäre wohl inhaltlich richtig, aber nicht angemessen. Ebenso greift es zu kurz, Architektur als Wissenschaft erklären zu wollen. Auch wenn maßgebliche Teile ihrer Diskurse und Praktiken durchaus wissenschaftlich sind, lässt sich Architektur nicht auf diese reduzieren. Die Leistungs...
