    Moderated by: Jan Kaulfuhs-Berger, editor in chief, Technische Logistik, HUSS-Medien GmbH


    This exciting panel discussion begins with a clarification of key terminology before exploring how the full potential of autonomous/automated vehicles can be unleashed by integrating them into fully automated, fully digital business processes. A conversation on the parallels between intralogistics and public transportation follows. The existential question in all of this: Do we actually need autonomous functions—in warehouses and on the road.

    Moderated by: Peter Altes, Director, AIM-D e. V with Thorsten Aha, editor in chief ident, Ident Verlag & Service GmbH


    Production, supply chain, and logistics are at the very heart of the digital transformation process—with growing synergies. Systems of automatic identification (auto ID) are the foundation of this process and of the communication between people, machines, and objects. The key challenges here are integration with software systems, cloud connectivity (IoT/IIoT), and the accompanying security concerns. The AIM experts illustrate and explain how auto ID is facilitating this digital transformation toward the more efficient management and optimization of business processes.

    Moderated by: Michael Lickefett, Dipl.-Ing., Head of Department for Factory Planning and Production Management, Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA


    Fraunhofer IPA is dedicated to taking the classic value stream method to the next level with digital tools. Data that is collected digitally and the value stream metrics it yields are often more accurate, up-to-date, and complete than the same data collected using clipboards and mean value estimation. We are working to integrate digital data acquisition capabilities into the value stream methodology. In concrete terms, this means helping you leverage production data from the source to the visualized value stream indicator.

Intralogistics trends: launchpad or dead end?

    Moderated by: Dr. Jörg Pirron, Chair of the Intralogistics Network in Baden-Württemberg and Managing Director, PROTEMA Unternehmensberatung GmbH


    There is definitely no shortage of trends and new developments in intralogistics. Some address procedural and organizational issues, and some are technical solutions whose practicality and cost-effectiveness even the experts find difficult to assess.

    The experts at the I.N. Forum delve into the following key questions:
    What trends or innovations are actually sustainable?
    What adds real value and what is just a waste of money?
    What are more long-term concerns, and what might just be dead ends?



    The great tragedy of intralogistics –
    The destruction of a beautiful trend by the ugly face of data reality
