    In this day and age, it is evident that companies rely heavily on supplies, yet self-sufficiency is being thrown around as a key buzzword. But when it comes to high-tech products, romanticizing about self-sufficient process chains is not a suitable solution. Of course it can be useful to shorten some of the supply chains in question. However, it is not always possible to produce mass quantities of sophisticated components on site. In automation technology, elaborate equipment must remain stable over a long period of time and be developed further using compatible processes – an approach that requires high-quality standardization.
