The complexity of nowadays logistics processes calls for new approaches to improve the logistics performance. The concept of autonomous logistics processes has proven to be a promising way to cope with these challenges. In this paper the idea of autonomous product manufacturing will be presented with a special focus on an integrated approach to process planning and production control. In particular we introduce a new way to let products decide by themselves what to become and how. Based on current findings in flexible and reconfigurable process planning, a framework for autonomous production will be presented. Following a critical discussion of the contributions and limitations of the proposed approach further research will be addressed.
