Agenda

Just like every year, we’re preparing TAL’s content in cooperation with experienced speakers and industry experts. TAL 2021 will provide inspiring thoughts, practical case studies and room for discussions and your own topics. We’ll gradually be filling in the agenda right on this website. But we’ve already posted presentations from several of our stirring speakers.

Once the presentations are over, we’ll all move on to a social evening, where we’ll share our impressions over good food and drink.

Finding the right balance for IT and logistics

International Automotive Components Group (IAC) is a leading global supplier of automotive components and systems. With more than 50 manufacturing locations and a global footprint that includes over 18 countries, IAC is taking on the challenge of standardising corporate IT systems while factoring in the specifics of each location, its manufacturing process and OEM requirements.

European Vice President for IT and Systems Tolga Özkundakci joined the company in July 2019. He bears responsibility for their IT & systems throughout Europe, and has over 20 years of experience in the automotive industry, working a variety of positions over those years. One of Tolga's major responsibilities at IAC is to standardise the ERP landscape throughout IAC Europe, as well as its systems for MES, JIS and warehouse management. In his presentation, Tolga will show how IAC successfully implements IAC's standard ERP system alongside a logistics and production solution that is a European standard covering the needs of complex manufacturing operations like these.

Virtual optimisation: A simulation-first approach to AMR development

Idealworks was founded in November 2020 as a wholly owned subsidiary of the BMW Group and has been both reimagining autonomous logistics and changing the way intelligent robots work ever since. Here at TAL, by showing real-life examples and use cases, idealworks will demonstrate how simulation enhances the integration of autonomous mobile robots.

Benedikt Weisser, Strategy Lead of the idealworks team, is coming to TAL to provide the attendees with a glimpse into the future. Working for major German OEMs, Benedikt gained experience in the automotive sector and especially logistics processes. For several years, he joined the BMW logistics innovations department and coordinated the international planning of logistics innovations rollouts to the BMW Group production network. Together with his colleague Adrian Litterst, Benedikt will explain why all AMR suppliers and their customers should recognise the importance of the strategic integration of simulation, elaborating the real-life benefits of using simulation, on both the supplier and customer side.
