Merging Production and SCM – on a Road to Manufacturing Excellence
Room: Forum Area
Organizers: Bundesvereinigung Logistik e.V. (BVL International The Global Supply Chain Network)
Logistics and production processes have long since ceased to be separate, isolated tasks. In the era of Industry 4.0 and self-managing factories, the boundary between the two functions is becoming increasingly blurred. Successful companies replace the model of independent silos by the model of interconnected organization – thereby achieving the best outcomes for the entire company driven by communication and cooperation. Manufacturing excellence today means a comprehensive way of thinking and doing, which outstandingly interlocks production and supply chain management, both with regard to strategies and processes. You can look forward to a wide range of different perspectives and benchmarks.
