Stages Insights 2016: Method Park conference, including separate workshop day
Almost 100 participants joined the Method Park Stages Insights conference on 17th March in Fürth to learn how to establish effective and meaningful processes in product development. This year, Method Park hosted its conference with presentations, user reports and discussions focusing on methods and tools for successful process management. This is Method Park’s tenth annual event.
Method Park supplies its process management tool ‘Stages’ and will release the latest Stages version [V7] in the course of 2016. Method Park CTO Erich Meier exclusively presented the new features of Stages V7 at the conference to the very absorbed audience.
Method Park experts offered individual consulting on solution approaches, for customer-specific challenges during the breaks in proceedings using the Consulting Café, which was fully booked by participants. Throughout the Stages Insights conference, participants had the opportunity to network with other participants and exchange information and experience at the booths of the Method Park partners, IBM and Pedco.
It became clear that having the right tool is no guarantee for reasonable processes but meaningful methodical approaches in implementing those tools is crucial.
All conference participants had the exclusive opportunity to join the “Process Management 4.0 Workshop” on 18th March, focusing on the so-called ‘Stages Method’. This is based on the five steps towards sector-independent implementation and realization of process management.
Executives of companies from different industries such as BSH, BRP, Continental Automotive, ESCRYPT, ETAS, Evosoft, Hilti, Hella, Schaeffler Technologies, ZF Friedrichshafen and Siemens Healthcare, joined this year’s Stages Insights conference.
“The varied content of presentations gave a good insight into the use of Stages and demonstrated how different customers apply the advantages of Stages. The presentation of the new Stages V7 features was extremely interesting”, the Solutions Data and Project Manager at Continental Automotive, Michaela Daxl, said.
Method Park will host its next Stages Insights conference, in spring 2017. “The throughout positive and constructive feedback by our participants, confirms our conviction that methodical process management is extremely important for many companies”, said CTO Erich Meier.
