Nobilia manufactures customized fitted kitchens with a lot size of 1. They require maximum transparency of tracking design data and individual processing steps so that they can locate a particular piece of kitchen furniture in the sequence of processes.

High-level language applications are used in production plants to communicate with the database and supply the respective plant controllers with adapted information.
