"As voestalpine, we are continually investing more and more in research and development and are focusing on strong know-how networks with scientific partners. Process innovation for us means to network the already fully automated processes along the entire production chain towards the SmartFactory, in order to obtain an optimized integrated system. In this context, the cooperation in projects with FH Upper Austria Hagenberg Campus provides important solutions that can be directly implemented in our production, such as the design of optimized and stable logistics sequences, or the integration of data-based models into the process."
