Production logistics – Industry 4.0: Trends, opportunities, barriers

Stuttgart/Vaihingen - 7.–8.6.2018

Industry 4.0. Meanwhile, this term ranks among the so-called buzzwords as digitalization or blockchain. There’s a lot of talk about Industry 4.0, but in fact many people don’t know what is behind the term. While the envisioned reality of a fully digitalized Industry 4.0 company is still a long way off, some firms have already taken their first successful steps in that direction. Experts point out that the chances of gaining a competitive edge with Industry 4.0 solutions are significant. The technologies are all market-ready, albeit only rarely in use.

As a lead consultant with many years of experience in production logistics and numerous successful reference projects such as BMW, Daimler, MAN Truck & Bus and VW,
io-consultants has initiated and is sponsoring – together with German trade magazine and organizer LOGISTIK HEUTE – the series of informational trade events that will take place this year for the second time.

Join us in Stuttgart/Vaihingen from 7 - 8 June 2018, and meet up with industry experts to discuss trends, opportunities and barriers of production logistics and Industry 4.0 at the LOGISTIK HEUTE symposium.

A tour of the research factory ARENA2036 in Stuttgart on 8 June promises to be one of the highlights on the agenda. ARENA2036 promotes the hardware based knowledge production of the future and stands for the joint development of product and production in the factory 4.0.

Top speakers at the symposium will include:

  • Dr. Christian Kircher, Senior Consultant Engineering & Sales Support Project Business, Bosch Rexroth AG,
  • Michael Becker, Director Global Engineering, Pfizer Manufacturing Deutschland GmbH,
  • Jonathan De Deken, Director DC Haasrode, VWR International,
  • Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dr. h. c. Karl-Heinz Wehking, Director of the Institute of Mechanical Handling and Logistics.

The full agenda is available here (in German only).
