Tools and methods for a successful implementation

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.
