Specialist congress on factory software

Factory software increasingly determines the competitiveness of manufacturing companies. It is no longer sufficient to deal only with office IT. Instead, all levels of the automation pyramid have to be considered - from the company level to the field level. In combination with new technologies, processes can be quickly and easily adapted to individual and changing customer requirements and made more efficient. However, the consistent integration of such technologies does not remain without consequences and fundamentally changes the interaction between people, technology and organisation.

Do you know how many suppliers are on the road in the digital factory?

One of the most exciting areas of digital transformation can be found in our factories: more and more software products are being used there. A current market study by my chair, which will be published in early 2021, has identified over 1700 systems from almost 1000 suppliers. What these systems can do and how you can turn your factory into a Digital Factory, you can also find out in our two-day online congress Factory Software.
