Sebastian Schlund

Sebastian Schlund is profesor at the Technische Universität Wien, Human-Centered Cyber-Physical Production and Assembly Systems at the Department of Management Science

Sebastian is working on the future of manufacturing and its impact on productivity, work and employment. Sebastian was head of the department of production management at the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering IAO in Stuttgart and is involved in various business projects, activities and initiatives concerning lean manufacturing, automation, digitalization and Industry 4.0. A holistic approach is applied to the study of commercial success, employees’ interests and social consequences. In keeping with the holistic approach pursued, attention is also given to the individual and social values held by people in their working environment. This not only addresses the task of creating ergonomic solutions, but also the additional qualifications required by employees in coping with the decentralized organization of work and the implementation of new technologies.
