Due to globalization, shortened innovation cycles and resource scarcity, manufacturing companies operate in an increasingly dynamic environment. In order to meet the resulting challenges, it is of great importance for producing companies to integrate and utilize the most efficient technologies to produce competitive products. Constant technological change requires continuous adaptation and proactive strategic technology management. To presciently tackle these changes, it is essential to identify technological demands at an early stage and derive future technological requirements. This work aims to establish a framework to identify and structure external influencing factors, which lead to strategic technological demands in manufacturing.
