Overview of Contents Conference tracks The competitiveness of a country, a sector or a com- pany depends largely on its ability to innovate. This calls for creative ideas when addressing topics that are of central relevance for the future. What innovations are being developed in logistics, supply chain manage- ment and information technology? INNOVATIONS SECTORS Well-structured networks are a key success factor, both in managing the complexity of flows of goods and information and for cooperation between com- panies and across national borders. How can these increasingly integrated networks be efficiently con- trolled and optimised? NETWORKS IDEAS Logistics is a cross-sectional function and a decisive success factor spanning entire sectors of industry – and it is of key importance both within companies and as a cross-company activity. The focus is on models to meet current logistical challenges in different sectors. Social change, scientific progress and business success all begin with an idea and the courage to put this idea into practice. The sequences will present future-ori- ented projects from the media, research, industry and humanitarian logistics.

  • 5. 5 30th International Supply Chain Conference Albert Einstein is supposed to have said he wasn’t interested in the past but in the future, because that’s where he intended to live. This would also be a good slogan for a conference that is seen as an important source of ideas and innovations. But experience tells us that, on its own, looking to the future is not enough. The future is always rooted in the past. This year, we will be able to look back on 30 years of the conference and 35 years of BVL. Our community is more future-oriented than ever before and can draw on well-founded expertise and wide-ranging experience. Together with inspiration from new stimuli and the development of new ideas, this is what drives innovation – in global business processes, social communication and sustainable business activities. Supply chain management and logistics are and will remain key topics in all fields of economy and society. The economic outlook is improving and, as a result, the logistics sector is also experiencing a steady uptrend driven by the optimistic mood, even if events in the field of monetary and fiscal policy, energy and raw material prices and the eco- nomic situation in Europe act as ever-present reminders that caution is the order of the day. The active exchange of knowledge, the interpretation of trends based on shared experience and the joint development of strategies are, as always, both important and necessary to generate “Inspiration, Ideas, Innovation”. Welcome to Berlin! Inspiration, Ideas, Innovation Prof. Dr.-Ing. Raimund Klinkner President, BVL International, Bremen, Managing Partner, IMX Institute for Manufacturing Excellence, Martinsried Our special thanks to the partners who made the conference and the wide range of services possible: Premium sponsors in 2013 Media partners in 2013
  • 6. 6 Wednesday, October 23, 2013 – Programme Inspiration, Ideas, Innovation This “milestone” anniversary is the ideal opportunity to look back at the develop- ment of logistics and at the key stimuli generated every year by the International Supply Chain Conference. The presentations and discussions will focus on the inno- vative drive of the logistics sector. “Inspiration, Ideas, Innovation” is the core theme in an era characterised by rapid change, high uncertainty and great volatility – but also by dynamic concepts and creative drive. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Raimund Klinkner President, BVL International, Bremen, Managing Partner, IMX Institute for Manufacturing Excellence, Martinsried Mastering Challenges through Transparency and Individual Responsibility The automotive industry is operating in an increasingly complex and global envi- ronment. From the point of view of supply chain management, this means that the entire supply chain must be as transparent as necessary. The ever more complex work processes are increasingly being managed through self-organisation to ensure that each participant in these processes can make their own individual contribution. Dr. Elmar Degenhart Chairman of the Executive Board, Continental AG, Hannover Production Driven by Perfection and Passion One of the factors behind the success of Porsche AG is a production concept that is systematically geared towards quality and efficiency – and this includes the com- pany’s tailored logistics operations. Production at Porsche is a byword for the ideal combination of craftsmanship and series production. This is key to producing pre- mium sports cars with a high level of customisation driven by perfection and pas- sion. Dr. Oliver Blume Member of the Executive Board – Production and Logistics, Porsche AG, Stuttgart Humans and Robots Working Together – A New Industrial Revolution? The availability of new key technologies driving far-reaching economic and social change is the hallmark of an industrial revolution. Production operations in Europe are often characterised by front-to-end automation, where humans are primarily responsible for planning and maintenance tasks but are not involved in the actual production process. The goal for the future is to introduce a “sliding automation scale” in which humans and robots work hand in hand and complement each other.

This is true not only for verti- cal relationships with suppliers, but also for horizontal relationships with other com- panies. It is not sufficient anymore to think in terms of one’s own sphere of influence, as the unit of competition is now the global network. What are top-performing com- panies from different sectors doing to gain a competitive advantage?

  • 11. 11 30th International Supply Chain Conference Special-topic sequence | Venue: InterContinental, Potsdam III9.30 Focal Point “Contract Logistics” The more detailed the required performance description, the better and more effective the outcomes of an invitation to ten- der. What difficulties are regularly encountered in cooperation between industry and logistics service providers during the ten- dering process?

But it is impor- tant to ensure that this communication is the “right” communica- tion, as this is the only way to improve service standards and avoid “shitstorms”. Social media guidelines are often drawn up to support employees in their interaction with customers in these modern net- works. Are these guidelines really useful? Which approaches appear to be most effective? Join the debate!

D 1 Active discussion | Venue: InterContinental, Potsdam I/III12.30 Logistics Innovations in the Field of Medicine – Inspiration for Other Sectors? Life and health are things of great value that deserve the best treatment and tried- and-tested services. How can logistical methods be applied in a hospital environ- ment? Can industrial processes be transferred to a medical setting? In which areas do emergency services outshine all the supply chain managers in industry and trade? The interplay of IT and logistics know-how opens up new options and perspectives. This is an area in which vertical cooperation is already a reality: hospitals, emer- gency services, pharmacies and logistics service providers work hand in hand, pro- viding an inspiring example for all sectors of industry.

Parallel to the increasing power of German industry, the policymakers must expect corre- sponding growth in other areas, in particular in terms of the amount of freight that needs to be transported. In addition, Germany is seen as Europe’s primary transit country. How can the transport infra- structure keep pace with this growth? Representatives from the fields of politics and industry discuss transport in tomorrow’s world and outline future challenges and solutions. Moderation: Andre Kranke Deputy Editor-in-Chief, Verlag Heinrich Vogel, VerkehrsRundschau, Munich Kick-off presentation: What German Industry Expects from Transport Policy during the Next Four Years Dieter Schweer Member of the Executive Board, Federation of German Industry (BDI), Berlin, BVL Advisory Board Discussion – participants include: Sören Bartol Spokesperson of the Transport, Construction and Urban Development working group, SPD parliamentary party, German Bundestag, Berlin Thomas Jarzombek Member of the Committee of Transport, Building and Urban Affairs, German Bundestag, Berlin Frank Dreeke Chief Executive Officer, BLG LOGISTICS GROUP AG & Co.

Trading logistics can increase agility and flexi- bility. While process optimisation in the branch outlet has become a key criterion in the stationary retail segment, the main factors in online trading are handling returns and ensuring same-day deliver- ies.

The TCO principle (total cost of ownership) is a proven instrument to ensure holistic procurement management and pin- point all cost drivers. It is not only of relevance to purchasing deci- sions but can also help to create transparency along the entire value added chain and therefore to ensure more effective corpo- rate management. Companies from different sectors outline their approaches. Moderation and kick-off presentation: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Stefan Wolff Chief Executive Officer, 4flow AG, Berlin, Member of the BVL Board Cost Optimisation through Value Sourcing Alfons Dachs-Wiesinger Senior Manager Transport & Logistics Services, MAGNA STEYR AG & Co.

M Plenary session | Venue: InterContinental, Potsdam I/III12.00 The German Success Model – Outlook, Potential and Risks The German economy is the cornerstone and the future hope of the eurozone. Dual- element vocational training, employee participation and our innovation networks are considered role models all over the world. At the same time, competitors are becom- ing increasingly strong in the sales markets in our globalised world and production locations are becoming centres of research and development. What are the implica- tions for the German success model? G 1 Franz Fehrenbach Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Robert Bosch GmbH, Gerlingen 13.35 Visit to the special-topic exhibitionLUNCH Plenary session | Venue: InterContinental, Potsdam I/III12.30 Business with Purpose More and more people are looking for products that “make sense” and that promote the development of humankind and our planet. This was the inspiration for the cre- ation of the organic food retailer Alnatura almost 30 years ago. How can we rethink industry and business so that we act in a meaningful and ecologically sustainable way? G 2 Prof. Dr. Götz E. Rehn Founder and Managing Director, Alnatura Produktions- und Handels GmbH, Bickenbach Plenary session | Venue: InterContinental, Potsdam I/III13.00 Production and Services in the Digital Era The “Fourth Industrial Revolution” is a term used to describe the integrated produc- tion operations of the future, where autonomous, self-organising production enti- ties are networked with each other and supported by intelligent products. Parallel to this, there are indications of a structural change in the classic service sector. The perspective is that the use of secure cloud infrastructures and the provision of new service platforms will lay the foundation for the future “Internet of Services”.

  • 25. 25 30th International Supply Chain Conference The German Award for SCM, to be pre- sented by BVL for the 30th time this year, is a highly prestigious award among logistics and supply chain managers in all sectors of industry. The motto for the first time this year is “Wanted: Innova- tion”. While the focus of the jury under Chairman Prof. Bernd Gottschalk has pre- viously been on integrated logistics solu- tions, the spotlight in 2013 is on innova- tions. Entrants may submit descriptions of methods and processes that have resulted in improvements to SCM and logistics. The concept should preferably already have been implemented in prac- tice. It is all about the innovative charac- ter, implementation and outcomes of the concept. The entry should be as specific as possible. Facts, figures and data play a decisive role. The deadline for entries is June 30, 2013. Every year, the International Supply Chain Con- ference is also the setting for award ceremo- nies. Which companies and which scientists have developed outstanding concepts for the future organisation of logistics and supply chain management? Which current and hands- on theses present innovative approaches? Day-to-day logistics thrives on innovation and inspiration from the world of science – the kinds of ideas that are found in dis- sertations, for example. This is why BVL has been presenting the Science Award for SCM for 20 years now. This award is conferred in recognition of outstanding academic work of young scientists that is of particular real-world relevance. The award also goes to the supervising insti- tutes, as they generated decisive stim- uli and created the necessary conditions for targeted work and research. The Jury Chairman is Prof. Michael Schenk. The award winner is chosen in a two-stage process. The ceremony for the award, which is once again being supported by BASF in 2013, takes place on the Thursday of the conference. BVL confers its Thesis Award, which this year is being supported by DB Schenker, in recognition of outstanding Bachelor, Master and “Diplom” theses. The theses should be application-focused and topical and should be of relevance to logistics. In 2012, 84 university lecturers put forward the best thesis they supervised in the field of logistics in the preceding year and nominated the student in question for the award. The award winner receives a certificate and an invitation to the Inter- national Supply Chain Conference. Nom- inations for the 2013 Thesis Award can be submitted between June 3 and 30, 2013.
