BorgWarner received a special Industry 4.0 Award for its new software tool for optimizing shift planning.

Currently under test at its plant in Ludwigsburg, Germany, the so-called KapaflexCy program (Capacity Management in Cyber-Physical Systems) allows BorgWarner to serve customers more efficiently, even on short notice.

Developed in collaboration with the German Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering (IAO) and sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the program helps BorgWarner directly involve employees in managing their facility’s production capacity by using smartphones for improved shift organization.
