Automotive Industry 2017
- Executives’ roundtable: Solutions of the future in the present of the vehicle industry
- Digital shift in practice: what should be kept in mind when planning and implementing a development project? Corporate case studies
- Advancing of the IT sector, the appearance of IT companies in the supply chain
- Labour market roundtable – How would we imagine the “company of the future” besides the expansion of digitalization and tech-companies?
- Alternative drive modes - autonomous and electric cars
- Alternative „energies” in the vehicle industry: renewable resources and energy efficiency in production
Western civilization has experienced three industrial revolutions so far - after the steam engine, the assembly line and automation the new, fourth industrial revolution is taking place today. The latest industrial revolution is about physical machines and objects connecting into an information network, real economy is integrating into a single, giant intelligent information system. Industry 4.0 is capable of giving answers to the challenges of the newfangled revolution, primarily to the total digitalization of the industrial processes. It is, however, not only about the spread of technology, but also about the paradigm shift of business processes - new job roles, new products, supply chains, production processes come into being and IT knowledge is becoming even more valuable. And who stays out misses out.
Therefore, it is not by chance that those wishing to keep their competitiveness are planning to grow quickly in this area: there is an increased demand on the smart business solutions of the future, the presence of IT companies in the supply chains is becoming more pronounced and we are getting closer and closer to self driving cars becoming available on the market. The joint conference of Portfolio and MAGE 4 will be about where this technological-innovation zugzwang will lead the motor vehicle industry, about what effect it will have on the labour market and about how the sector can prepare for the challenges of the digital competition.
