Smart Industry – the fourth industrial revolution in the Netherlands 
Egbert-Jan Sol, TNO Industry

Smart Industry is the acceleration of digitalisation of our industry. It should lead to higher productivity, shorter delivery time, smaller series or n=1 for the price of mass production and ultimately an increase of remanufacturing or local production of goods. Zero-defect, zero-programming, zero-surprise (in maintenance), 100% digital twinning  and 100% digital connected supply chains are typical technological goals. Smart products and servitization are examples of business goals. But most important for all involved from business and society the challenge the every job in industry will be changed within 10 to 20 years and implicit need to (re-)train or continuously train everyone’s digital skills.

Smart Factory – What Does This Mean For Procurement?
Dr. Hendrik G. Seliger, HGSeliger Management Consulting

More and more companies ready their factories to be “smart”. Oftentimes this simply means ensuring data flows through the factory as “LEAN” as the product should do. All is connected, transparent, and control more efficient. Up to factory gate, where suppliers drop their material and the connection breaks.

But then, many companies today have 50%, sometimes even 80% value creation done by their suppliers! What does this imply for Procurement? How to link in this part of the supply chain? And how to deal with the increased transparency and dependence if you need to negotiate best conditions?

Smart Factory – Was bedeutet dies für den Einkauf?
Dr. Hendrik G. Seliger, HGSeliger Management Consulting

Mehr und mehr Unternehmen vernetzen ihre Fertigung und statten sie mit Sensoren aus, um sie zu einer „Smart Factory“ zu machen, in der Daten genauso „LEAN“ fließen, wie das Material es tut. Bis ans Fabriktor, wo Lieferanten ihr unvernetztes Material abladen.

Ein Bruch, denn heutige Unternehmen haben oft 50%, manchmal sogar 80% der Wertschöpfung bei ihren Lieferanten! Aber was heißt das für den Einkauf? Wie kann man diesen Teil der Lieferkette einbinden? Und was bedeutet diese höhere Transparenz und Abhängigkeit, wenn man gleichzeitig die besten Konditionen verhandeln soll?

Advanced Manufacturing in The Netherlands
John Blankendaal, Brainport Industries

Manufacturing in The Netherlands has changed quite a lot over the years facing challenges w.r.t. lower wage countries versus high mix , low volume, high complexity, miniaturization, robotising, etc. Manufacturing needs to be as fully automated as possible in order to minimise downtime due to conversion work. Researchers, companies and organisations have to work closely together. At the Brainport Industries Campus these new ways of working together will become into operation.

Additive4Industries Innovation Session - Your first step into innovation collaboration in additive manufacturing 
Anne Verhaag, Brainport Development

The Bavarian Cluster for Mechatronics and Automation Augsburg (Cluster M&A) and the Brainport Eindhoven consortium invite you to start your innovation collaboration in additive manufacturing on Wednesday April 25 at Hannover Messe at the Dutch Industrial Supply Pavilion (Hal 4).

Bavaria and Brainport Eindhoven have a strong motivation for joint investments in technology development and share the vision that the innovation cycle needs to be opened up. The partnership intends to boost innovation and knowledge valorisation in the mechatronics and automation sectors in both regions.

During this session you will learn more about the R&D and innovation approach within the Additive4Industry programme. Afterwards you will hear two inspiring presentations from experts in the additive manufacturing industry from Bavaria and the Brainport region. What additive manufacturing research is taking place, what are the latest developments and how could you cooperate? During the following meet-and-match you have the opportunity to discuss more into depth with fellow companies and research institutes how you can cooperate or which research would be beneficial for your company. This is where the Additive4Industries project can help you further and where the collaboration starts.
