Baltic Management Institute visits THM Business School for Industrie 4.0 Conference
From October 25th to 27th our MBA partner BMI visited Frankfurt and Mittelhessen for a 3 day conference on Industrie 4.0. 20 executives from Vilnius Lithuania were given a fist hand look into the latest developments of one of the most important trends in industry. The program consisted of a general outlook and forecast of the German and European economy given by Prof. Hayo Reimers, followed by an in depth look into the latest trends by the Industrie 4.0 Coordinator of the THM, Prof. Gerrit Sames. Martin Heinz, general manager of ITAC Software AG and Alumni of our THM Executive MBA, provided insights into software architecture needed for excelling manufacturing automization and integration. Company visits to Continental Teves in Frankfurt, Bender GmbH in Grünberg, and Buderus Guss GmbH in Breidenbach provided valuable use cases for the implementation of the Industrie 4.0.
Besides getting the latest insight into industrial developments, the group was able to enlarge its network with German industry and to get a flavor of German industrial culture.
