Industry 4.0 in practice: Thuringian companies visit QUNDIS
On Thursday evening QUNDIS provided a look behind the scenes at its cutting-edge, fully networked production facility in Erfurt. Around 30 representatives of Thuringian companies were invited as guests and took part in the discussion on Industry 4.0.
Industry 4.0 is currently a hot topic everywhere, including the Free State of Thuringia. However, exactly what do we understand by the term, and how is it implemented with regard to procurement policies in practice? In his presentation Mirko Stetefeld, head of the procurement section at QUNDIS, explained the risks and opportunities which networked production presents to the procurement operations of a mid-sized company. Representatives of Thuringian companies such as JENOPTIK, Otto Bock, Weinrich and Lindig Fördertechnik took part in the event and the discussion, and exchanged experiences on the subject of Industry 4.0. The event was organised by the Federal Association for Merchandise Management, Procurement and Logistics, in cooperation with Thuringia’s Enterprise Federation.
