the theme >> the speed of change
Technology has enabled acceleration everywhere in the modern world. People have fast accustomed to speed in their daily lives, from instant circulation of information to zero time-to-market manufacturing products. Yet the demand for quality stays high, the regulatory systems raise, and the competitive landscape expands. The result is an increase of complexity within the design and production process, leading to more acceleration for companies. As a paradox the speed of innovation demands levels of accuracy and controls that require time and slow pace.
How to satisfy the demand of knowledge by experience and the urgency of collaborating with enough velocity? The meeting will offer the opportunity to learn how companies of the like of Whirlpool, Mahindra and Volvo are tackling design decision-making at the speed of today’s data.
call for presentations
The conference is open to both academic and industry contributions showing how modeFRONTIER has been applied to accelerate product innovation. Authors have until February 26, 2016 to submit their abstracts. The deadline for full presentations/papers is April 29, 2016.
