On 26 January 2019 (6:30 pm), the eve of this year’s ISM & ProSweets trade fair in Cologne/Germany, Datasweet and Arsandis, consulting companies for the confectionery industry and for Industry 4.0, will host a workshop in Solingen/Germany to survey and discuss recent developments in industrial digitization and how they affect the confectionary business. Emerging technologies such as Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Internet of Things are expected to be essential components in future offerings of machine manufacturers. Consequently, established providers must develop strategies to incorporate these technologies if they want to stay on top of their game.
The workshop will assess opportunities in sales, production, service and training and give real world examples of applications that add tangible value. The goal is for attendees to understand how digitization impacts their business, to identify key areas where actions are needed and to establish potential first steps in their digitization journey. Attendees will get an opportunity to experience these digital applications live in a number of hands-on workshops with virtual reality and augmented reality devices. After the workshops, attendees will have ample opportunity to discuss with the experts directly or to network with peers. Entrance is free, catering is provided.
