Production companies operate in increasingly turbulent and discontinuous environments. The rapid speed of change, coupled with a high complexity of cause-effect relationships of industries, globally-dispersed markets, technologies and economic areas create great challenges to the manufacturing systems. Therefore, a more holistic view of technical and organizational freedom is needed in production to support sustainable planning, control and modification of manufacturing systems, which incorporate system and life cycle aspects to the goal of profitability. Hence, reliable statements about flexibility on different organisational levels in a manufacturing system have a considerable role to ensure resource efficiency. The following paper details the concept for calculating the production flexibility and the application experience in industrial production from the flexibility assessment toolbox ecoFLEX. It enables the simulation of targeted and dynamic alignment of existing plant structures and value-added processes with external environmental and internal changes. Unlike digital factory planning tools, a complete picture of the specific plant situation is not required, as will be illustrated by selected case studies from the medium sized assembling and stamping production enterprises.
