Digitalization changes the handling of data and information by offering new and extended opportunities for collecting, transferring, evaluating and exploiting information. This allows increases in effectiveness and efficiency and also opens new opportunities for productivity management. To analyze how these opportunities are used in the German industry and which potential for further development is estimated, the Institute of Applied Industrial Engineering and Ergonomics conducted an online survey querying specialists and managers in the year 2019. Partial results for the German metal and electrical industry are described and discussed in this contribution. They prove the increasing use of digitalization and the related expectations within this significant industrial branch.
