MID Survey 2011 - Market and technology analysis

Erlangen, (PresseBox) - The number of MID series applications has increased significantly up to 2010. This is supplemented by a number of new MID system manufacturers and MID producers who earn considerable revenues in the meantime. Against this background, the advanced 2011 MID Survey intends to clarify the reasons for this development of the MID sector and how it can be forced to continue to develop. To achieve this, first of all the German market will be evaluated within the context of a global comparison and the technology will be evaluated on the basis of interviews with experts and the current state of the art. Subsequent, current MID applications will be presented and a few reference projects described in detail.

MID market in a global comparison

This chapter examines the German MID market and compares it with markets in the regions of Europe, USA and Asia

Technology analysis

MID technology will be analysed in three steps. First of all, the current state of the art will be presented in a compact form. On the basis of expert interviews, current opportunities and limits of the technology will then be identified and evaluated. To conclude, future action fields for MID technology will be presented.

Application analysis

The focus is only on current series applications. For selected series applications, there will be a detailed description of the MID project from the initial idea up to deployment at the customer. Major key factors for successful MID projects will also be examined.

The present survey was headed by Prof. Jörg Franke, professor of Manufacturing Automation and Production Systems (FAPS) at the Friedrich-Alexander University in Erlangen-Nuremberg, and Prof. Jürgen Gausemeier, Heinz Nixdorf Institute (HNI) in Paderborn, and created by Christian Goth BSc Eng. MBA (FAPS) and Roman Dumitrescu BSc Eng. (HNI).
