Stages Insights 2017: Agenda of Method Park conference reflects success of the product “Stages”

Presentations of Stages customers such as BMW, BSH Hausgeräte, Drägerwerk and ebm-papst St. Georgen show that the process management tool “Stages” is established across all industries.

Almost 100 participants joined the Method Park conference in Fürth on March 29, to learn more about how to apply and live processes in practice. This conference took place for the eleventh time in succession and presentations and discussions again focused on methods and tools for successful process management.

Method Park offers such a process management tool with “Stages”. After the cloud release of the latest Stages Version V7 in November 2016, CTO Dr. Erich Meier presented new developments and the future roadmap at the conference in Fürth. Some of the participating companies are already using Stages V7 as a test version. Method Park is continuously interacting with these customers to include their feedback into future implementation plans. News about V7 was well received by the conference audience.

Prof. Dr. Bernd Hindel explained the value of process modularization in his presentation “Higher Efficiency with Process Patterns”. In his presentation “Rapid Automotive SPICE Compliance with a Standard Process”, Dr. Holger Höhn demonstrated how to quickly establish Automotive SPICE® compliance in organizations.

Method Park is particularly proud of the four customer presentations held by representatives of BMW, BSH, Drägerwerk and ebm-papst who demonstrated their successful work with Stages and proof that methodical approaches combined with project-specific adjustment and automated process implementation, make product development far more efficient.

This year, the futurologist Erik Händeler concluded the conference with presentation “The history of future”.

In addition to presentations, conference participants had the opportunity to seek individual advice and solution approaches on company-specific challenges, from Method Park experts in the Consulting Café which was booked up this year again. Furthermore, conference participants had the chance to network and have discussions with other participants at Stages Insights and get informed and exchange experiences with experts at the Method Park and PEDCO booths. Executives from companies of different sectors such as IAV, RUAG Space, HERE, BRP, Continental Automotive, Hella, Schaeffler, ZF Friedrichshafen or Siemens Healthcare were among the conference participants.

This year, Method Park offered its “Process Management 4.0” workshop on the following day . This workshop consists of five core steps for effective implementation of process management for all industries.

Method Park again will be planning the Stages Insights conference for spring 2018: “The upcoming Stages Version 7, is the biggest step in innovation in the tool’s 15 year history. In 2018, we would like to present practical experience from our customers”, says Dr. Erich Meier.
