The Zukunftswerkstatt 4.0 is a constantly growing project that was launched for the automotive industry in July 2020 by the steering committee of the "Transformation Council for the Automotive Industry" in Baden-Württemberg, chaired by Dr. Nicole Hoffmeister-Kraut, Minister of Economics and Labor. The Zukunftswerkstatt 4.0 takes on the role of an "innovation showcase" that can be used to test new technologies and systems along the customer journeys in sales and aftersales. Conceptually, the Future Workshop represents a real place where the actual structures and processes of a car dealership are mapped in a realistic and practical manner.
