AmCham Regional Project: Modern Manufacturing

AmCham Regional Project: Modern Manufacturing

Wednesday, Apr 14, 2021 From 15:00 to 16:30

A Project Under The Regional Inititative of AmCham Slovakia and AmCham Czech Republic

The EU wants to gain a competitive economic advantage by leading the world into a sustainable future. How will this strategy impact Central Europe? Can the region use the funds that the EU has devoted to this strategy to become the global center of a digitized, highly resource-efficient production?

This will depend on how capably businesses can make these investments in new technologies boost the bottom line. To help manufacturers weigh their options, Am-Cham is initiating a series featuring case studies of regional manufacturers at the leading edge of change.


  • Petr Knap, EY, Head of Consulting, Czech Republic, Head of Automotive, Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe (Moderator)

Trends in the digitalization of manufacturing, including case briefs from heavy industry (reducing the number of unplanned stops), food products (increasing average module output while decreasing resource waste), and automotive components (reduction in unplanned downtime).

  • Uwe Kueppers, EMEA Consulting Services Manager for Rockwell Automation

Case Study 1 - Steelanol: Converting carbon produced by industrial processes into biofuel. Through microbial fermentation, gases produced during steel production will be converted into biofuel.

  • Michal Major, Plant Director, Whirlpool Slovakia

Case Study 2 - Whirlpool: With or Without Industry 4.0 !? Is it an overly expensive toy or can it deliver "real" productivity? How to make it play for win and avoid losing money? Whirlpool Slovakia presents its use case on "What & How" of Industry 4.0

  • Marc Gillis, Strategic Account Manager EPC for Rockwell Automation

Case Study 3 - Doosan Bobcat: Plant optimalization. A digital transformation of the production process that improved efficiency.
