The 7th Innovations Forum on October 19, 2017 in Kornwestheim near Stuttgart for the first time combines the main focus areas of project planning with those of factory and logistics planning. The K conference center is about the “digitization of cooperation”, the opportunities of which are presented to planners, IT managers and decision-makers in lectures, workshops and software presentations.

The 7th Innovationsforum of IPO.Plan GmbH is organized for the first time in cooperation with Actano GmbH under the umbrella of Actano Holding. Like-minded experts from logistics, production and project management will be given a forum to discuss the challenges of the future. In the modern cultural and congress center of the city of Kornwestheim, visitors will get to know common innovations such as RPLAN 4D. This software demonstrates the potential of combining project management and 3D factory planning. The attendees will experience with live VR glasses live how project management and collaborative project management can be experienced through 3D scenarios.

The keynote on the topic “Project management in times of digitization and work 4.0” is held by Holger Lörz, Managing Director of Actano GmbH and as author of an expert on modern methods of project management.

IPO.Plan with IPO.Log 4, a software for the continuous planning of production logistics and assembly, presents an outstanding innovation. The processes are dynamically calculated “line-back” from production over different storage stages and transports back to the goods receipt. This allows detailed statements about the time and resources required.

In the afternoon, two workshops will be held in parallel. In this way, each participant determines himself whether he wants to deal in detail with factory and logistics planning or the project management of the future. For this purpose, RPLAN Enterprise, the leading software for project management in the automotive industry, will be presented with RPLAN Connect, the innovative solution for operational areas, small businesses or suppliers. How an agile project management benefits the future of RPLAN Workstreams is part of the program as well as the use of CCPM approaches in collaborative planning.

Due to the up-to-date and wide range of topics, from artificial intelligence to resource planning and supplier management, the innovation forum has certainly earned its name.
