1st Interdisciplinary Conference on Production, Logistics, and Traffic
Organization: DYNAMO PLV
|Event Date/Time: Mar 20, 2013||End Date/Time: Mar 21, 2013|
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Megatrends like increasing volatility, digitalization, globalization and urbanization bring up new challenges for production, logistics and traffic. Companies increasingly benefit from complex global value networks. At the same time transport infrastructures reaches its limits due to rising freight transport. As a consequence transport and mobility is constrained and traffic becomes a limiting factor in production. Therefore, public authorities that want to tackle these effects have to consider developments in Production and Logistics.
The two-day conference will follow a series of workshops with more than 40 invited experts dealing with interdisciplinary questions concerning the following core topics:
- Urban Production and Logistics (Sequence 1). As a megatrend of the future, rapidly intensified urbanization comes along with major challenges for production, logistics and traffic across value chains. Five speeches from experts and top managers will deal with the implications and present new solutions.
- Enablement through Integration of Systems in Production, Logistics and Traffic (Sequence 2). Sophisticated design, implementation and utilization of information technology presents a considerable opportunity for creating synergies and for leveraging opportunities across production, logistics and traffic. This sequence focuses on future concepts and technologies for further system-integration of these tress disciplines.
- Organizing Traffic Management of the Future (Sequence 3). Increasing freight traffic emphasizes the need for a systematically organized traffic management that addresses supply and demand in a sustainable way. In this sequence, experts from different fields approach the subject from various angles, integrating the aims and objectives of public authorities and private production and logistics enterprises.
- Distributed Value Creation (Sequence 4). Recent trends like increasing volatility, globalization and digitalisation are currently leading to increased complexity in value networks. In this sequence, five experts from industry and academia will present their views on impacts, limitations, opportunities and risks of distributed value creation for tomorrow's supply chains.
