Process Insights Germany 2019 in Nuremberg
Last Tuesday, over 140 participants joined Process Insights Germany 2019, the conference to which the consulting company Method Park invites participants every year. The participant numbers increased by more than 50% compared to the prior year – a record high in the 13 year conference history. For the first time, international guests participated in the conference and Method Park engaged a simultaneous interpreter for them. Companies from the automotive industry, medical technology, aerospace and IT sent their process experts to Nuremberg.
Central Topic: Process Management
Keynotes, presentations, discussions, round tables, a specialized exhibition and the Consulting Café focused on the challenges of product manufacturers worldwide: efficient management of business or engineering processes, compliance to standards and norms, and the integration of tools. The demand for the exchange of know-how and experience in these topics is at an all-time high. Today, the development of technological products has reached a level of complexity which is only controllable with efficient processes. Technical presentations highlighted individual factors of process management and their solutions. With best practices, user presentations demonstrated how tools such as Stages, developed by Method Park, contribute to simplify processes. In round table discussions, the participants deepened individual aspects of the presentations. The final keynote showed that, in addition to all technical and structural changes, the company culture has to be sustainably formed for the future, too.
20 Sessions in the Consulting Café
In parallel to the round tables, Method Park organized a Consulting Café, as in previous years. These consulting services were offered free of charge and with 20 sessions in all, Method Park Consultants were fully booked. The most frequently requested topics were methodical approaches of process management and the practical use of Stages.
“Supported by the dedicated work of our program committee, consisting of representatives from Audi, Hella, Schaeffler and ZF, we developed a very extensive and demanding program this year. It was worth the effort – the participant feedback was excellent. It also reflects the rapidly growing relevance of processes in the development of complex products,” says Dr. Erich Meier, Method Park CTO, about the success of Process Insights Germany 2019.
Backed by this positive feedback, the planning for Process Insights Germany 2020 has already started. On March 11, 2020, Method Park will again offer a platform for discussions around the management of engineering processes. The call for papers will start soon.
