Trade Forums LogiMAT 2019
High-ranking experts from industry and research will be talking about key themes and the latest trends in in-company logistics held in forums right in the middle of the exhibition halls.
The emphasis will be very much on practical, successful solutions, thus giving maximum benefit to strategists and managers working in procurement, production, warehousing and dispatches.

FIRST HAND INTRALOGISTICS
Official opening of the trade fair LogiMAT 2019
by Michael Ruchty, Exhibition Director LogiMAT Stuttgart,
EUROEXPO Messe- und Kongress-GmbH, Munich
Keynote lecture: Artificial intelligence. When will the machines take over?
Keynote lecture: Prof. em. Dr. Klaus Mainzer, Mathematician and philosopher, founding director of the Munich Center for Technology in Society (MCTS) at the Technical University of Munich, international author
He studies the foundations of machine learning, the opportunities it presents and its limitations. He also explores future perspectives for Germany and Europe in the global race towards digitalisation.

An algorithm for everything – except our future
Intralogistics with distributed artificial intelligence on the way to the platform economy
Chaired by: Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. Michael ten Hompel, Director of the Fraunhofer IML, Ordinary of FLW, Technical University of Dortmund
The central hypothesis in times of artificial intelligence could be: All processes that can be described in algorithms will be – and that applies to all intralogistics processes. A new world is emerging in which algorithms negotiate, blockchains secure flows of money and goods, and artificial intelligence processes determine success in a coming economy of platforms. This route seems pre-programmed, because all the technology for it is already there: From the IoT device with 10-year battery life to networks (5G, NB IoT et al.) and highly scalable platforms where millions of users meet.

Tugger train 4.0 – Revolution or evolution?
Approaches to autonomous and flexible supply processes
Chaired by: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Johannes Fottner, Chair of Material Handling Technology, Material Flow and Logistics,Technical University of Munich, Garching near Munich
Current research and development efforts focus on the automation and dynamic development of tugger train systems. The forum addresses different approaches and discusses their potential for the manufacturing logistics of tomorrow. The automatic loading and unloading of carrying units, the significance of integration within the smart logistics chain and dynamic route planning and control will be among the subjects of discussion. Both the commercial aspects and the effects on technical system design will be addressed.

Start-IN – Transforming traditional corporate cultures
Supply chain organisations are efficient, agile and disruptive
Chaired by: Bettina Bohlmann, Start-In Guide, 3p procurement branding GmbH, Düsseldorf; Contributor to the Supply Chain Summit EXCHAiNGE 2019
Many supply chain organisations focus exclusively on efficiency and the ability to optimise. This can have a fatal effect when change is fast paced. Even if the core business is designed on lean management principles, organisational units are still also needed that have the structure and mindset of a start-up and which focus entirely on (disruptive) innovation. Instead of formalisation, hierarchy and structuring, the units that focus on cross-cultural ‘research and experimentation’ are more likely to be described as informal, autonomous and risk-tolerant.
FF 2019 - Haeffs, VDI, EN
Technical developments enable innovative, more efficient systems
Chaired by: Jean Haeffs, Managing Director, VDI-Gesellschaft Produktion und Logistik (GPL), Düsseldorf
Technical progress in areas such as sensor systems, image recognition algorithms, automated vehicles and communication is advancing rapidly. The performance of these components is improving continually and their prices are falling. Both aspects can open up new economic opportunities including in manufacturing logistics. The challenge of the future is to combine these components in a logical manner to create more efficient and more economical complete systems. In addition to questions of technical integration, new planning processes must be developed here that will meet these challenges.

The gigabit society: how well prepared are we?
First steps on the way to digitalisation & Industry 4.0
Chaired by: Hans-Joachim Schlobach, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief, BUSINESS+LOGISTIC, RS Verlag GmbH
Everyone is talking about digitalisation and Industry 4.0, yet hardly anyone mentions the major challenges that not even the technicians know how to overcome. Considering the volatility of the developments themselves, the deficit of skilled labour and infrastructural problems, enormous challenges face society before the gigabit society and Industry 4.0 can become a reality. A group of opinion leaders from industry and science discuss the challenges and approaches to a solution for the achievement of the gigabit society and Industry 4.0.
