What will production planning and control look like in the future?
This question will be answered at the second Expert Forum on Production Planning and Control (PPS) on June 17, 2021, in Frankfurt on the Main and as a web conference. The event for specialists and managers of manufacturing companies will focus on the successful use of digital technologies for future-proof production planning and control.
Among other things, the benefits and potentials of Digital Shadows in production as well as the increasing importance of energy and ecology in the context of production planning and control will be addressed. The question that has arisen in the wake of the Corona pandemic as to how production planning and control must be designed to be efficient, customer-oriented and at the same time robust in the future will also be discussed.
Keynote speeches by Prof. Günther Schuh (Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL) of RWTH Aachen), Prof. Peter Nyhuis (IFA Institute for Factory Systems and Logistics of Leibniz University Hannover), Prof. Hermann Lödding (IPMT Institute of Production Management and Technology of Hamburg University of Technology) and Prof. Johannes Schilp (Fraunhofer Institute for Casting, Composite and Processing Technology IGCV Augsburg) will highlight the current state of research.Copyright: © IFA
