AN EXCEPTIONAL 2020 CONFERENCE PROGRAM
So be there from the 31st of March to the 3rd of April next year for a vast program of:
master classes by a major captain of industry on the importance of the industry of the future in his company,
keynotes by a factory director or a technical manager, providing feedback on an issue related to the industry of the future,
round tables which will bring together three to five speakers to talk about one of the main current technological or strategic issues in industry.
The main themes of the round tables (as established on the 9th of September 2019 and subject to changes) will be as follows:
> Technological Debates
Robots and cobots: for everyone’s good
This is THE big debate of our time. Some people see robotics and cobotics as man being replaced by machines. Others see them on the contrary as an opportunity for industry and employment.
The Digital Twin, a weapon of mass industrialisation
The Digital Twin offers numerous possibilities to strengthen the performance of products, anticipate the steps of their life cycle or plan production line activities, etc.
3D printing: the big industrial challenge
The additive manufacturing revolution has started sweeping through factories. What are the advantages and what are the obstacles (skills, financing, etc.)?
The big challenges of the IoT
While the IoT is enabling objects to become intelligent and revolutionising industrial processes and services, it also faces major challenges liable to block its development, particularly the increasing numbers of standards and the supply of components.
Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence. A gimmick or true Intelligence?
In the current digital revolution, a new step is being taken with the use of these two technologies which, when used together, have the potential, according to Bpifrance, to "uberise platforms" to directly link the user and the producer.
Cyber security in the age of the IIoT
Connected objects are invading our factories. The IIoT is entering production sites, bringing considerable gains but throwing the doors of your factories wide open.
The MES at the heart of the factory of the future
Simultaneously exponential and essential, information flows within the factory of future must be controlled by an appropriate computer system which orchestrates the operation of the site. The MES is thus destined to play an increasing role in tomorrow’s factories.
> Strategy debates
Plastic is (no longer) fantastic?
Not a month goes by without plastics being singled out as environmental risks. In spite of this, the sector is reinventing itself.
Maintenance, an industrial issue today and in the future
From conventional maintenance to proactive maintenance, the need to have production tools operating to their full potential is becoming essential. What are the latest changes in methods and in their implementation?
Open Innovation, tomorrow’s industrial weapon
Far from being a simple communication process or a naively altruistic approach, Open Innovation constitutes for manufacturers an exceptional means of development by sharing risks while at the same time investing in new sectors. Testimonies.
Manufacturers / customers: the industry of the future reshuffles the cards
Totally redesigned business models, customisation of products, shortening of deadlines, reshuffling of the cards regarding relations between equipment suppliers and assemblers... What will the new face of industry be?
Industry, a world for women
Regularly singled out for criticism as an almost exclusively male world, industry is seeking on the contrary to open up to women. With mutual fulfilment as a result.
Energy, the great challenge of the industry of the future
Although the digital era seems to be slowing down the huge waste of raw materials for which industry was criticised, it nevertheless necessitates picking up the challenge of controlling and intelligently managing energy.
Training of the future and the future of training
Industry is having difficulty in recruiting. At the same time, industrial professions are being radically transformed. The challenge of training is a double one: adapting to these changes and attracting people. How does this work out in practice?
