This paper introduces the standardized design and the use of self-sufficient Mobile Working Stations (MWS) for meeting upcoming requirements in providing agility for wide range assembly tasks. It describes how the physical equipment of an assembly line can be prepared for being fit for processing highly customized or even fairly new products outside the existing production portfolio in a very short time. Herein all relevant mechanical, informational and safety related aspects for a new setup have to be obtained. This includes a maximum in functionality and universality of the single MWS and the environment of the factory as a whole as well as the use of a Real Time Locating System (RTLS) for providing the always up to date positions of the MWS or other moveable elements in such an agile factory. The paper closes with an outlook to related ongoing research topics.
