Today's production plants are highly complex. They work with a large number of very different system components from a wide range of manufacturers. Those who want to master the greatest challenges of automated industrial production can benefit again this year from the experience of renowned experts from science, the tech scene and business. The focus topic of "CONNECT 2023" is "Automation Success".

In the various presentations, participants will learn how they can effectively tackle the diverse tasks and problems in automated production and increase effectiveness in data management - and sleep better at night. One of the high-profile speakers is Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Bauernhansl, Director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA in Stuttgart, with his presentation on "Data Governance as the Key to Automation Success". In addition, experts from Robert Bosch, ThyssenKrupp, Arla Foods and Heineken will share exciting best cases from production practice, showing how they have achieved improvements in their automation processes. Further, resilience coach Friederike von Benten will offer exercises and tips for strengthening personal resilience in everyday business life.

Stefan Jesse, Co-CEO, and Dr. Jonas Kalb, Head of Product, will be among the speakers from AUVESY-MDT. Dr. Kalb will discuss in particular the new features of the octoplant pro hub and their advantages. The new features enable the creation and individual editing of dashboards based on existing as well as imported data. With the easy-to-implement SaaS solution, smart asset management is achieved at the click of a mouse, enabling an improved understanding of all physical devices - with information on manufacturer, device type, firmware versions and much more.

If there are irregularities in production, there is a threat of expensive downtime. In addition, there is pressure to increase productivity, reduce costs and manage a vast amount of data," explains. With our CONNECT online conference, we have created a digital platform that offers solution approaches, expert impulses and concrete application examples for practical implementation.
