The 12th GALP CONFERENCE WAS HELD: AGE OF INNOVATION AND CHANGE OF MINDSET IN INDUSTRY
On November 9 and 10, the 12th GALP conference was held with the theme "Age of Innovation and Change of Mindset in the Industry".
Another successful GALP conference is behind us. Over 100 participants, more than 20 speakers, 3 round tables, and 4 exhibition spaces are only part of this year's GALP story. The first day of the conference began with a factory visit of the company Končar - energy transformers, which included a presentation of the company's history, a tour of the production facility, and familiarization with some of the implemented Lean solutions as well as those related to Digitization (implemented MES system modules, tracking of components with RFID technology and others).
The second day of the conference, moderated by Ivan Vrdoljak, took place at the Westin Hotel in Zagreb, where participants had the opportunity to listen to experts from renowned Croatian and international companies, such as Rimac Technology, Gideon Brothers, Culmena, Mindsmiths & CroAI, Dell Technologies, Podravka, Hrvatski Telekom, Fluentis, Končar – Energy transformers, Micro-Link, Bauwerk Group Croatia, Lean Scheduling Europe, and many others. Also, part of the program was an interview with James P. Womack, the "father" of Lean Management and the name "Lean". In addition to lectures, there was also a talk show with part of the partners in the "100 Smart Factories" project and a round table with the theme "Age of innovation and change of mindset in Industry". We are especially glad that the round table "Application of digital technologies in the early detection and prevention of malignant diseases" was held, which showed how the development of technology can positively affect human life and health.
They talked about the importance of changing the mindset and culture of innovation in business, and about Smart Factories, Lean implementation experiences, green technologies, and omnipresent digitization.
The participants had the opportunity to see modern solutions in the field of Smart Factories, digitization, and green business at the exhibition spaces of the company Fluentis, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Shipbuilding, the Ruđer Bošković Regional Competence Center and the Regional Competence Center for Vocational Education in Mechanical Engineering Industry 4.0.
We would like to thank the sponsor of the conference, the company Monter Strojarske Montaže, and the media sponsors Lider Media and posao.hr.
See you at the next conference!
