Producing more intelligently

For the first time, the VDMA Congress on “Producing more intelligently” will be held under the aegis of the EMO Hannover 2013. Based on the motto “Inspired by technology”, the organisers have put together a program of high-caliber speakers. Top-flight experts from international industry will report on their experiences and success strategies in a global production environment.
Innovation, flexibility and technological expertise are key factors for success in global competition, particularly for manufacturing companies.

The three main topics:

  • excellence
  • efficiency and
  • intelligence,

pick up on the themes that currently top the agenda in manufacturing technology.

Three well targeted themes
Excellence focuses on lean production and flexible value chains. The topic of efficiency centers on sustainable and resource efficient production. Finally, intelligence addresses the close dovetailing of the virtual and the real production world in the wake of Industry 4.0.
