Planning for production is based on a comparison between the target and actual status. In companies with limited resources, cost-intensive developments such as setting up production can jeopardize the success of a company. The lack of key figures makes it difficult to prioritize measures. For this reason, a systematic trendbased foresight approach is presented and evaluated in this paper. The created acceptance and trust show that this approach can support in taking future decisions.
