HANNNOVER, GERMANY - Organizers of LIGNA, the giant biennial wood manufacturing trade show, will launch a companion conference series during the off-years. The first one, to be held May 3-4, 2016 in Hannover, Germany, will carry the theme of "Integrated Manufacturing in the Woodworking Industries - the Woodworking Community on its way to Industry 4.0."
The conference is intended as as a complement to the global LIGNA trade fair, staged in odd-numbered years. LIGNA 2015 drew 96,000 attendees 1,552 exhibitors, 56 percent of them from outside Germany.
Questions for Industry 4.0
How will business models of the future change and what effects will those changes have?
What requirements will be placed on our enterprises, on strategic decisions, processes, and workforce?
What can we learn from best-practices of other industries, and where do we stand in the woodworking industries?
The Event Location: Robot Central
