What makes a swarm intelligent production ingenious?

What could we copy from nature and paste into a swarm intelligence assembly system?
Are there intelligent patterns we can learn from and transfer to the production system?
We worked towards answering these questions.
We studied the new production process and took an in-depth look into the principles of nature’s swarm intelligence.
We applied the findings and ideas to a new production unit.
We developed a list of recommendations to be implemented.
We learned about and improved a state-of-the-art technology for the industry.
