"Learning Factories for research, education, and training";
In the last decade, numerous learning factories for education, training, and research have been built up in industry and academia. In recent years
learning factory initiatives were elevated from a local to a European and then to a worldwide level. In 2014 the CIRP Collaborative Working
Group (CWG) on Learning Factories enables a lively exchange on the topic "Learning Factories for future oriented research and education in
manufacturing". In this paper results of discussions inside the CWG are presented. First, what is meant by the term Learning Factory is
outlined. Second, based on the definition a description model (morphology) for learning factories is presented. The morphology covers the most
relevant characteristics and features of learning factories in seven dimensions. Third, following the morphology the actual variance of learning
factory manifestations is shown in six learning factory application scenarios from industrial training over education to research. Finally, future
prospects of the learning factory concept are presented.
