Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to transfer the idea of changeability to a concrete technical application. Design/methodology/approach – Based on the definition of changeability on a factory level, a transformation of the five change enablers specified therein for the work station level using the example of an aerodynamic feeding system takes place in this paper. Findings – The observed aerodynamic feeding system can be determined as changeable. Practical implications – Changeable systems are able to react with low effort to exterior influences, e.g. of the market, and thus represent a considerable competitive advantage. Originality/value – The new element in this paper is the observation of change enablers on the work station level. This point of view enables the concrete figuration of changeable technical systems.
