German term or phrase: 1-Stück-Fließfertigung mit einer niedrigen Fertigungstiefe
Die Basis dazu bilden eine Reihe von Innovationen, mit denen sich das Familienunternehmen klare Wettbewerbsvorteile geschaffen hat; zum Beispiel in Form einer prozessorientierten Organisation with hohem Teamarbeitsanteil, der 1-Stück-Fließfertigung mit einer niedrigen Fertigungstiefe durch den Bezug hochintegrierter Baugruppen und durch bereichsübergreifende Konzept-Workshops, in die auch Kunden einbezogen werden.
Obviously, I am most interested in ta translation of the phrase quoted but any help with the sentence structure of what comes after the semicolon would be appreciated.

English translation:sentence structure
Explanation:
I am lacking a number of words, but the sentence means something like this: This is based on a number of innovations which give this family firm a clear competitive advantage; e.g. a process-oriented organisation with particular emphasis on teamwork, the one piece flow production with – due to the sourcing of highly integrated systems/components – low production depth, and inter divisional/disciplinary concept workshops in which customers are included. Hope this gives you the gist of the sentence, even if certain terms need looking at.

one-off assembly line production with low vertical integration


Explanation:
(For an example of the use of 'one-off assembly line production' see URL below, last paragraph).
I take the 'with' in the German sentence to be 'mit', and assume that the 'der' after the comma is also governed by the same 'mit' - the sentence is not clearly written. I would suggest the following for the part of the sentence after the semicolon:
for example,in the form of a process-orientated organisation with a high degree of team-work participation and one-off assembly line production with low vertical integration, employing highly integrated construction groups and concept workshops with an overview of the whole process, in which clients participated.
