Technical platform

The online participants will have access to the seminar via an appropriate link.

Other topics driving digitization and efficiency gains in the industry include: Lowering manufacturing costs, reducing start-up costs, increasing flexibility, capacity utilization and quality, and ultimately, of course, cybersecurity. 

Also highlighted are the digital platforms and communication systems needed for a smart manufacturing industry. After all, with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), it is also necessary to network logistics processes and administrative data with production machines.

This will enable central real-time monitoring and evaluation of the future smart factory. Last but not least, users will talk about their experiences and “lessons learned” from their own projects. In addition, the sub-areas that can be made smart, such as condition/process monitoring & predictive maintenance, will be highlighted and interfaces for the Smart Factory will be presented.

Target groups

The seminar is aimed at members of management, plant and operations managers, division managers, as well as responsible and senior production employees, especially from the areas of production IT, production planning, corporate strategy/development, logistics, maintenance and robotics & automation. As well as the students of the relevant study courses.

In particular, the following sectors are addressed: automotive industry, OEMs and suppliers, metalworking and processing, mechanical engineering, electronics industry, food industry, packaging, plastics.
