The Congress “Excellent Factories” has set itself the goal of demonstrating holistically the future of factories and the factory planning process. To achieve this purpose, the Congress will take place within the framework of the forum Building the Future. The interdisciplinary program will allow you to examine factory planning from different perspectives, and gain a comprehensive overview of the future. Two different streams during the congressional sessions will allow you to immerse yourself in the world of future factory planning.
