Forum C
  • Chaired by: Thorsten Aha, Editor-in-Chief, ident, Ident Verlag & Service GmbH, Dortmund

     

    The experts’ forum of ‘Auto-ID Technologies for logistics and automation’ is concerned with the digitisation of logistics. Flexible solutions and high-performance technologies are needed in order to meet the entire spectrum of customer requirements today. Consistent implementation of Industry 4.0 strategies presents an enormous challenge particularly for small and medium-sized companies. In order to demonstrate ways into Logistics 4.0, these practical lectures will present and discuss the application of technologies such as RFID, NFC, barcoding and marking.

AutoID technologies for Logistics 4.0

Digitisation of material flow and logistics

  • Deutsch
Hall 4
Forum C
  • Chaired by: Peter Altes, Managing Director, AIM-D e. V., Lampertheim

     

    Production, material flow and logistics are being increasingly digitised and therefore are growing ever closer to one another. Automatic identification systems (AutoID) and intelligent sensors form the basis of this process and communication between people, machines and objects. Integration with the software systems, IT security and cloud connectivity (IoT) are central tasks. AIM experts will point out opportunities for digitisation based on AutoID technologies and for more efficient control and thereby optimisation of corporate processes as a whole and discuss for materials handling a new kind of material flow system with automatic handling for goods-to-person delivery.

Packaging Logistics 4.0

Smart cartons – not your basic box

  • Deutsch
Hall 4
Forum C
  • Chaired by: Sandra Lehmann, Editor, LOGISTIK HEUTE, HUSS-VERLAG GmbH, Munich

     

    Augmented reality, beacons, printed electronics: Digitisation is revolutionising electronics. This is currently causing excitement at a point in the supply chain that has hitherto often been underestimated: packaging logistics. But smart transport packaging conceals opportunities for optimising the supply chain and for customer satisfaction. The forum will demonstrate just what smart cartons etc. are already like and what advantages they can offer to users. Discussions with experts will clarify where there is still room for improvement.
