Forum D
  • Chaired by: Prof. Dr. Kai-Oliver Schocke, Professor for Production Management and Logistics, Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences

     

    In the context of a specialist forum, SICK AG and SALT Solutions AG will show, using project and application examples, how connected logistics will be able in future efficiently to link machine and process data using SAP systems and add-ons – completely without system discontinuities due to third-party systems. Simplifying human/machine interaction plays an important role in this, using intuitive and high-performance user interfaces.

Digital logistics tools

How industry 4.0 techniques and concepts will change logistics

  • Deutsch
Hall 8
Forum D
  • Chaired by: Michael Lickefett, Head of Dept. of Factory Planning and Production Management, Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation (IPA), Stuttgart

     

    Increasing digitisation and automation facilitate new applications and scenarios in production and logistics: Mixed-reality tools are becoming part of production and convey interactive information to support planning and processes. At the same time, the data supplied is better focused on the user, for example in material provision. Automation assessment identifies potential across the board for logistics optimisation. The forum will give an insight into the various tools and methods.
