EOS and IESE are cooperating together, and the core of the collaboration is the Executive Education Program on ‘Industry 4.0: The Future of Manufacturing’. The manufacturing sector is currently facing a significant transition, with senior management facing new challenges. IESE and EOS are combining its 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 selectively in Munich or Barcelona provides decision-makers with insights into key elements of this transformation process, including technologies like the connected factory, smart robots and additive manufacturing.
Based on business scenarios, skills for the successful realisation of the digital transformation regarding Industry 4.0 are showcased. EOS will provide first-hand experience via customer examples, which have already integrated industrial 3D printing into their manufacturing process – and will show how companies can benefit from using this technology in terms of productivity and cost savings.
Ready for the future of manufacturing
Professor Dr. Marc Sachon, Production, Technology and Operations Management Professor, at IESE Business School, stated: “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 programme.”
Keppler added: “The collaboration with IESE Business School emphasises the significance of industrial 3D printing for the senior management. 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.”
Victor Paluzíe Avila, IESE Business School PDG and EOS Sales Partner in Spain and Portugal said: “Company managers have to quickly assess opportunities and effects of far-reaching change processes for their business and market. They need to develop a clear vision for the future and a suitable strategy for implementing it. In that process, they can greatly benefit from the experience and expertise of EOS and IESE.”
