07/07/2020 The working group "Systems and concepts of production" met in a web conference on July 7th 2020 to discuss its internal organization and its interfaces with the other working groups. The main toppics of the meeting were the thematic structuring of the working group as well as the interaction between the subprojects. In addition, a glossary for unified definitions of terms is being compiled by all participants, which will be successively expanded. In future regular online meetings, problems of individual sub-projects will be discussed on the basis of short impulse lectures.
