Given the proceeding digitization in manufacturing, technical universities are facing an increasing demand to study the technical
innovations associated with smart manufacturing concepts in their laboratories and learning factories. Moreover, they need to
transfer research insights towards teaching. The thematic spectrum is enormous – starting with production technologies, via robotics
and mechatronics, M2M-communication and security, up to the virtualization of processes and modern algorithms, e.g. machine
learning. In this context, we explain the concept of the Digital Factory at the University of Applied Sciences Technikum Wien.
Further, we present two exemplary use cases and conclude with current findings regarding learning factory concepts.
