Exciting seminar: Development paths to digital production

“Digitalization! But how?”

Whether you are a newcomer or have experience in IT or production, whether you are a medium-sized company or a corporate group, if you are asking yourself these or similar questions, then this is the right event for you!

Using practical examples, our experts work with customers to show how the level of digitalization maturity in production planning and execution can be further developed. Take advantage of the opportunity to learn from the wealth of experience of the seminar participants and independently identify ways to improve in the areas of process management, IT systems, and organization.

With this seminar, Concircle Österreich GmbH and Fraunhofer Austria Research GmbH want to give you practical “tips and tricks” to find the right entry point for digitalization projects based on your own situation and to set the right measures.

After practical presentations and industry examples (including the global MES implementation of Bühler AG), the vivid demonstration of a highly digitalized production in the pilot factory of the Vienna University of Technology (consisting of an SAP ME/DMC MES landscape, SAP HANA/S4 incl. conOS detailed planning and SAP EWM warehouse system) will round off the exciting seminar day.


9.45 – 10.00 Greeting

From practice – for practice. Welcome to a meeting of experts in the Pilot Factory Industrie 4.0.

10.00 – 10.30 Impulse presentation

Digitalization – How and where do I start? Why does a maturity model for digital production make sense? What approach can be derived from it to make your production more efficient in a targeted manner? Thomas Edtmayr (Head of Assembly Planning and Assistance Systems Fraunhofer Austria) and Konrad Pfadenhauer (Digital Process Architect at concircle) will open this exciting, practice-oriented topic day with answers to these questions.

10.30 – 12.30 Development path of production planning from Excel to the integrated planning system

Using industrial planning processes as an example, Farhang Akhavei (Teamlead Manufacturing Consulting at concircle), Selen Marangozoglu (IT Consultant at concircle), and Lukas Lingitz (Head of Planning Systems at Fraunhofer Austria) will show how to approach a solution step by step that is right for your own organization and requirements. Concrete solutions will be presented, from a smart tool for learning planning strategies to an intuitive SAP add-on for detailed planning.

12.30 – 13.30 lunch break

13.30 – 14.30 Development Path: Production Execution

Amrit Khanna, Digital Officer SCM at Bühler AG, the world market leader in food processing equipment from Switzerland, will report on how his company approached the “paperless manufacturing” project. From the strategic objectives to the functionalities of the implemented MES solution, he will provide exciting insights into a journey that is far from being over.

14.30 – 15.30 Development Path: Assistance systems

Fraunhofer and concircle are continuously working on making digital assistance systems more efficient, especially for complex assembly processes. The process begins with the simple creation of work instructions and ends with the optimal design of worker interaction. Gerhard Reisinger (consultant at Fraunhofer) and Melissa Brunnbauer (Manufacturing IT Consultant at concircle) will guide us through an integrated process using clear examples.
