The PI congress conference which will be taking place in Düsseldorf, Germany next month features a 50+ speaker line up including Martin Eigner, Chair of Virtual Product Engineering (VPE) at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern delivering on ‘Utilizing Industrie 4.0, IoT and Related Platforms to Boost a More Interdisciplinary Approach to Product Lifecycle’.

“Innovation is the life source of any competitive manufacturer and a vital part of its preservation is its adoption across the company. After extensive research with past attendees, I have ensured an agenda and speaker line-up have been curated to touch upon those questions most are asking: what technology do I need? Which is best for me? How do I deploy it? How do I get company buy-in? And how can it give a return in the form of innovative product design and development?”
- Michael Ratcliffe, Production Director
