About SPS Nurnberg

Smart Production Solutions can help specialists complete several goals. Such includes networking and expanding professional knowledge. The event aids in accomplishing such business aims via its diverse event schedule. Often, the iterations feature one or more central topics. For instance, one format focused on electric drives, living automation, mechanical infrastructures, control technologies, manufacturing software, and interface technologies. Each topic consists of three to nine categories, with the information being provided by leading figures. Example topics include Industry 4.0, safety, AI use cases, data-driven control concepts, and novel logistic methods. These central topics and categories determine the discussion subjects for many sub-events within the event agenda.
