EOS and IESE Business School collaborate to showcase the future of manufacturing

January 20, 2017

Additive Manufacturing systems maker EOS GmbH, headquartered in Krailling, Germany, and the University of Navarra’s IESE Business School with campuses in Barcelona, Madrid, Munich, New York and São Paulo, have announced they are working together to prepare decision makers for Industry 4.0. The core of the collaboration is said to be an Executive Education Programme on “Industry 4.0: The Future of Manufacturing”.

It was stated that IESE and EOS will combine their expertise in the fields of management knowledge and technology know-how, introducing executives to new business models and opportunities focusing on the future of manufacturing.

A three-day edition of the programme is scheduled to take place May 3-5, 2017 in Barcelona, Spain and July 11-13, 2017 in Munich, Germany. It will provide decision-makers with insights into key elements of this transformation process, including technologies such as the connected factory, smart robots and Additive Manufacturing.

“The industry is facing the next big step of development and Additive Manufacturing is playing a key role: the focus is on the integration of Additive Manufacturing into existing and future production environments, which requires optimisation of both part and data flow in serial production,” stated Dr. Adrian Keppler, Chief Marketing Officer at EOS.

During the programme EOS will provide first-hand experience of customers who have already integrated industrial Additive Manufacturing into their manufacturing process. It will show how companies can benefit from using this technology in terms of productivity and cost savings.

“In an environment shaped by rapid technology and process change, remaining competitive requires informed, innovative and future-focused leaders. The Industry 4.0 Executive Education Program takes a dynamic, interactive approach to developing participant skills through interactive discussions, lectures and workshops, and direct engagement with manufacturing businesses already on the transitional journey to Industry 4.0. With EOS as the global technology leader for industrial 3D printing, we have the perfect partner to conduct this executive education program,” stated Prof. Dr. Marc Sachon, Production, Technology & Operations Management Professor, IESE Business School.

“Together with IESE, we can prepare the management in manufacturing companies for the new challenges due to the digital transformation and communicate the advantages of new production models such as additive manufacturing in a way that they can quickly generate a genuine value-add for their own business,” added Keppler.
