Digital Evolution Across Borders

  • What makes a company ready for the digital change – innovation flexibility, traditional managerial approach, or combination of both?
  • How can the open-minded approach to management styles help companies in the region to innovate faster?
  • What innovations can Digital Delivery approach bring to industrial IT projects?

These and many other questions will be answered by the first Czech-German automotive conference.

After twenty years of rapid development of Czech and Slovak industry, we believe it is the right time to share the experience and innovation know-how also with our Western neighbours.

That’s why we cooperate with the regional chamber of commerce IHK Regensburg für Oberpfalz / Kelheim.

Your world has just changed: At the age and tow of acceleration change

We live in a tow(age) of accelerating change, moving from digitization to productive autonomy. Digital technologies are already prevailing in industrial, construction and transportation spheres. Post-digital world is offering us a transition from components to integrated productive systems (echoes of the Baťa’s “Industrial city”). The very speed of change is becoming a new quality of itself, every enterprise is becoming a special innovation unit in networks of global and local cooperation. Both tradition and politics represent resistance, which can only be overcome via a technological and organizational “bypass”. The logic of the Age of acceleration is unforgiving: continuous learning and education will become unavoidable.

How connected technology will give rise to more efficient supply chains

The future is all about technology. Where is technology needed? What solutions are out there? Today, some 15 billion devices are connected to the internet worldwide. In the year 2020, it will probably be 50 billion. Our world is changing and fantastic possibilities are opening up. Whether driver assistance technologies or networked appliances, new technologies are making our supply chain operations easier. Advances in automation and robotics will have a massive impact on operational processes. While machines can take on many tasks, they certainly can’t replace people completely. In many cases, work will take on the form of close collaboration between human and machine. Both humans and machines have their strengths. It is up to us to combine them harmoniously and, in so doing, make our world simpler and more flexible.

Production 4.0 – new paths for the automotive industry

Production 4.0 describes an overall concept of future factory, which pushes implementation of the Industry 4.0 even one another step forward. Employing technologies, like Internet of Things or Cloud, means that all factory elements gain their own digital presence and become steerable within the smooth circle of rules. The core stone of Production 4.0 is a long overdue interconnection of manufacture and logistics with integrated planning and production. Numerous planning and control tools are making way for one tool that surpasses all - the “Production Process Platform“. To put it simply: Digital factory of future controls real production.

Production planning know-how transfer from a Czech branch to Germany using SW tools

How to increase efficiency of schedulers by as much as 50%? How to employ single APS system for all branches of one company, each of them having a different IT infrastructure? A lecture by Roman Mühlfeit from the Magna Exteriors company, which has implemented a system for scheduling injection presses in its plants in Liberec and Nymburk, might bring you the answer. Know-how from production planning in the Czech Republic has been successfully transferred to a German location. Pilot project took just a short time, because the same tool with uniform logic for highly specialized manufacturing processes was used.

Production and human resources planning in SAP

The KOSTAL company keeps trying to improve its key and support processes, using main control systems like SAP. The presentation will focus on optimization of production planning process starting with receipt of a customer order, going on with definition of production batches, scheduling work orders while respecting available machine capacities, up to staffing.

Alois Mahr Director, Global Engineering (GE), Zollner Elektronik AG

Networked manufacturing in electronics production

Digitalization in electronics production has continued to increase in the last recent years. One of the drivers for this was and is traceability. As a result of material traceability at the assembly level, these requirements for the production processes became more and more important. In the meantime, modern electronics productions record an immensely high number of data and parameters. Using this "data treasure" for future requirements and services will be an important support for a modern and future-oriented EMS company to meet the challenges of future digitalization within the framework of industry 4.0.  In the presentation, these aspects are illustrated by examples from the perspective of the leading EMS service provider.

Warehouse that has begun to think on its own

Innovative and very sophisticated warehouse management of the world high-speed industrial doors brought us radical increase of storing efficiency and acceleration of shipments. When we received the task from EFAFLEX, our mother company in Germany, in 2015, to establish a central shipment warehouse in our Czech branch, we had our own idea of a warehouse management system and way of storing goods. Our ideas were daring, entirely abandoning more than 30 years of experience of our German co-workers. We were given freedom, we had courage, and we made it our way. It paid off!

We have organized the Trends in Automotive Logistics (TAL) conference since 1999 with the focus on current topics in logistics, production, and integration and usage of new technologies, methods, and means in digitization.

During its existence, the conference has gained a strong position in the market and it is a sought-after opportunity for meeting experts not only from the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

170+
professionals Every year, the conference is attended by more than 170 professionals mostly from the automotive industry.

What have we learned in the past years

TAL is always a great gathering of true professionals
