WHAT IT IS ABOUT:

Managers from industry and business are talking about the buzz term ‘digital transformation’. At the same time the understanding about how to carry out a digital transformation and how to determine its success on the shop floor could not be more blurred and vary more. This is why this one-day-lecture is providing a compact and integrated overview how to concretely implement a digital transformation on your shop floor.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:

In the context of this event the participants get to know the building blocks of a digital smart factory transformation and learn to understand their complexity. Based on the NEONEX fundamental understanding of digitization in a factory it will be explained how to define, plan and implement digitization projects for the shop floor successfully and sustainably. Apart from an overview of the key principles of agile project management this also includes the explanation of industry 4.0 potential and value chain analysis. Besides, the use case term will be introduced, and it will be examined how to build up an implementation roadmap with evaluated potentials within the context of existing company goals. Furthermore, it will be discussed how to approach a quick pragmatic implementation through concepts such as mock-ups or Minimal Viable Solutions. Finally, the role of Manufacturing Execution Systems as a key component of the IT infrastructure will be evaluated. By means of actual sample projects, it will be shown which success factors, risks and hidden efforts are linked to a digital transformation.

The seminar will be in German language.

WHAT IT IS ABOUT:

Many manufacturing companies do already apply lean methods successfully. At the same time, there is an I4.0 media hype. However, in the country of the world's largest IT trade fair, many companies are still reluctant to adapt to the economy of the future. Nearly eight out of ten German companies admit that their executives’ qualification is lagging in the I4.0 development. Every second company has not yet begun to adapt its vision to meet future requirements (see Study German Industry 4.0 Index 2018). Also, the prejudice that Smart Factory means a "dark", human-free, and completely robot-controlled work is cleared out of the way! Why? – Because humans and machines complement each other excellently.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:

We look behind the scenes of the buzzword "I4.0" and show similarities as well as differences in the approaches "Lean" and "I4.0". How can both approaches be linked to a further increase in productivity? Understand the relevance for your own practical work as well as potential challenges to act in a forward-looking manner. Complex topics are taught in a practical way. You will learn more about risks that might come up when implementing Lean and I4.0, about technologies which promise fast successes and about the fact that a Smart Factory is much more than just IT. Live insights into the SEW plant show an excellent combination of both approaches to optimize the production sustainably.The seminar will be in German language.

WHAT IT IS ABOUT:

The value stream analysis (WSA) is a proven method, which aims for significant improvement of the value stream performance. The Method is popular due to its’ easy handling. It only needs pen and paper. The connection between material and information flow within the value stream gets clarified, analyzed and optimized. The advantage is the harmonized process improvement instead of isolated improvements, which could worsen the value stream performance. The digitalization of product areas, called "Industry 4.0", opens new opportunities. With it's targeted use an additional streamlining and therefore a better performance can be achieved.

Get an insight into our seminar "Value stream analysis 4.0" in the free info webinar on the seminar.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:

Value stream analysis 4.0 is based on proven methods of lean production and implements opportunities for digitalization systematically. The aim is to identify actions of improvement.

WHAT IT IS ABOUT:

At the moment condition monitoring, predictive maintenance and asset management are some of the top buzzwords within the context of Industry 4.0. But how do they fit into the overall context of digital industrial transformation? Their specific impact on modern maintenance is often discussed today. Here, the comprehensive availability of data regarding the current status of networked machines and systems is primarily in focus. Future-oriented sensors and the precise prediction of failure times is also widely discussed. Adapting maintenance processes to the new technical possibilities, however, is still often neglected in the discourse.

Get an insight into our seminar "Smart Maintenance" in the free info webinar on the seminar.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:

Learn which fundamental changes digitalization brings for predictive maintenance and how to successfully get started with sensor data acquisition/ evaluation. Get solutions for data-driven optimization of weak points in maintenance processes. By doing so, you will also succeed in evolving from paper-based "reactive" repair processes to system-supported planned maintenance.

The seminar will be in German language.

WHAT IT IS ABOUT:

Successful implementation of changes is absolutely critical in the current times of great upheaval. Simply communicating the need for change is no longer sufficient, as concentration processes, cost pressure, as well as pressure to grow and innovate as a result of the disruptive rise of technology are generating unbelievable dynamics. This requires a very rapid change of mindset as well as targeted interventions in organizations, value added chains and culture. Controlling a process of this kind is one of the most difficult management tasks to undertake. Moving away from carrot and stick methods and focusing more on getting everyone enthusiastic about common objectives. Systematic change management targets a discernible increase in implementation success.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:

We provide you with the necessary knowledge and tools so that you can independently plan and implement targeted changes. You will learn about useful analytical instruments that can help you integrate implementation aspects early on and are sensitized to the kind of management behavior that is guaranteed to lead to success during change processes. Learn how changes can be successfully communicated and how to sustainably anchor change in the minds of your employees – despite resistance.

WHAT IT IS ABOUT:

Digitalization. A megatrend that no company can ignore! At the same time, however, its nature is not immediately apparent to many corporate executives. Opportunities and challenges often remain diffuse, yet. Buzzwords dominate communication. Specific first steps do not seem to be worthwhile. The classical characteristics of the value added "turnover, cost structure, flexibility" are too dominant and long established practices to achieve company goals are too deeply embedded in the culture. Digitalization is revolutionizing the value added to entire industries, changing the way companies work together, creating new sales channels, and opening great efficiency potentials throughout the company. Pioneers are already achieving considerable success.

Get an insight into our seminar "Practical Digital Strategies for the Industry" in the free info webinar on the seminar.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:

Lectures and interactive workshop elements will show practice-oriented approaches to transfer the abstract topic of "digitization" into your own value creation system. How does a Smart Factory work to produce faster, more flexibly and more cost-effectively? What possibilities does digitization create to redesign the interface to my customers and to make the innovation process more effective? And how can sales be increased through intelligent products and new business models? Get answers! Selected BestPractice examples illustrate possible starting points and the necessary prerequisites to pave the way for your own digital strategy.

The seminar will be in German language.

WHAT IT IS ABOUT:

Intense competitive situations are what often lead to performance-oriented corpo- rate management. The main focus of the "world-class company" approach is on a systematic concept for optimizing both the performance and results of a company or business. The objective is to discuss and then test concrete courses of action and measures to orient the business towards "world-class level". This not only revolves around identifying the right methods and instruments for redesigning processes in striving for internal expertise. Indeed, the role of management in promoting human potential is also a key factor here.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:

Numerous comparisons between successful companies demonstrate which concepts and approaches have proven successful at leading companies. You will learn how quality management is introduced and further refined, as well as how innovation potential is consistently developed to boost the time-based competitiveness of product development operations. You will also have the opportunity to reflect on the obstacles to be overcome in order to bring out the full performance potential and which hurdles need to be cleared on the road to establishing a new kind of organization.
