Publications about the project
The range of structure sizes for industrial products produced today is increasingly expanding. This trend is evident in both small-scale (e.g. semiconductor applications) and large-scale (e.g. wind turbine rotors) products. While definitions already exist for smaller scale device structures, the conceptual distinction between conventional large products and large scale products is currently insufficient. In this study, we present a potential basis for the definition of large scale products. To achieve this, we derive hypotheses and examine these in the context of an empirical study using the examples of several sample products. It is shown that the transition from conventional products to large scale products is characterized by a disproportionate increase in product costs due to the augmentation of a characteristic product feature. Eventually we derive a proposed definition which characterizes large scale products in the field of production engineering.

This paper discusses the different characteristics used to describe XXL-Products and, furthermore represents fundamental aspects concerning the construction (eg. principles, methods) of production systems. A survey of experts at XXL-Producers is used to identify the most commonly used production systems. The article demonstrates the survey results and finally concludes with an outlook on further actions.
