Programme

Prevent. This simple word summarizes an entire concept – intelligent maintenance is an important step when speaking of connectivity and Industry 4.0. This new industry is heavily influencing business models and processes. With the introduction of cyber systems, the level of new concepts, methods, procedures and technologies is constantly increasing. Productive processes can be performed seamlessly with issues and problems being predicted and resolved before creating production losses for the end user. The quantity of available data available to businesses is expected to double every 1.2 years in the 21st century. Innovative methods to handle big data to create information are needed. Ag machinery and related sectors are ready to take this leap for the ultimate connection to the future.

Today’s agricultural mechanization is at a very high technological level in terms of automation and simplification of the production processes. What is needed today is an increase in both terms of efficiency as well as the capacity to interact with various machines through a “common language”. Electrification provides less friction, better control of systems and a simpler layout requiring less space. The future is electrification – there is still a ways to go, but the goals are clear.

The Systems & Components technical program follows the line of interaction between humans and humans, humans and machines to ultimately arrive at the interaction between machines and machines. The past has seen the use of monitors and control systems to aid the user in making decisions through visual and acoustic messages. Today’s reality is different – “Human Computer Interaction” – where the new challenge is “how to communicate intentions”. To succeed, communication channels need to be more expressive, more refined, to let relevant messages stand out and allow more subtle clues to filter through. Connectivity between humans and machines is already here, but the future will bring this connection to a more sophisticated level.

As interfaces evolve, so must the construction of both machines and the components that they are composed of. Materials used in ag machinery and that of related industries are constantly evolving to meet stricter regulations that better protect both the consumer and the environment while providing improved consumption, reliability and lower costs. The future of materials is constantly evolving to best connect all pieces to make a whole.

Corporate social responsibility within corporate realities. How companies are structuring and fostering their future workforce through the involvement of the next generation into creative thinking and recreational activities. What is the role of academies, foundations and training facilities that companies have established over time? Team-building activities are fundamental for developing a sense of community within the same company and are the basis of company philosophies and social responsibilities.
