19-21th June 2019, Spirit Hotel Sárvár*****
5th Smart Factory ConnAction Conference
[industry 4.0 conference]
Smart Factory ConnAction is the 5th instalment of an annual industry 4.0 conference series. This year’s speakers primarily represent the automotive industry – managers and experts of well-known Hungarian companies will introduce their results in the field of industry 4.0. The presentations will not define industry 4.0 or show its potential as these topics were covered in depth in previous years. Speakers representing clients as well as Hungarian and multinational suppliers will concentrate on case studies providing actual, practice oriented information to foster the implementation of industry 4.0.
At the ConnAction conferences we break with the tradition that we participate in every presentation, regardless of it being of interest to us or not, or even if it is irrelevant to us. The Smart Factory Coordinator application enables you to plan your programme two weeks before the event – select the presentations and other events you wish to take part in (for example workshops, factory visits), and book a meeting with exhibitors and other representatives so that you can discuss what you’ve experienced with them regarding industry challenges. The conference will have 150–200 attendees, most of whom face the same problems that you face. The Smart Factory Coordinator application helps you book a meeting with any of the participants in advance of the event. Do not miss this opportunity!
The Smart Factory ConnAction Conference has a tradition of visiting an exceptional, innovative manufacturer to gain inspiration for your industry 4.0 implementation. In 2016 participants visited the Kecskemét plant of Mercedes, in 2017 the Győr plant of Audi and in 2018 the Óbuda plant of Festo. This year we will visit the Opel plant of Szentgotthárd and the Lövő plant of Roto Elzett Certa to kickoff the conference on Wednesday, 19 June, in the morning. Registered participants can sign up for the factory visit in the Smart Factory Coordinator application.
The 10 thousand m2 wellness facility of Spirit Hotel Thermal Spa will ensure that participants can relax after conference programmes. Thursday will include an allocated time slot for this purpose so that participants can process all the new information. On the second morning of the conference there will be a run together for industry 4.0. Our secret hope is that this will be the start of a tradition.
[industry 4.0 experience]
Smart Factory ConnAction is an authentic industry 4.0 conference. Our speakers willnot define industry 4.0. We will cover case studies and best practices, while paneldiscussions will concentrate on sharing actual experience.

Smart Factory ConnAction is an authentic industry 4.0 conference. We will go beyond simply defining industry 4.0. Automotive industry parts manufacturers, representatives of other manufacturing companies, and the most important solution suppliers will present already implemented solutions and case studies while panel discussions will focus on sharing actual experience, as this is the type of information that participants can use directly in their daily activities.
Participants of the visit will have an opportunity to see the automated production lines that manufacture the 3 main engine components – block, main shaft and cylinder head. The visit will also include the production lines where workers currently assemble PSA “Flex” engines. Production will switch to “EB” engines from the end of this year. A short live presentation on “data management for the industry” is also included in the visit.
Roto is a well-known brand of window and door technology. Our visit to Roto Elzett Certa Kft will enable participants to see the largest manufacturing plant of the group. The program will start with a short presentation giving an overview of the Industry 4.0 model plant case study (MES, small batch production, predictive maintenance and so on). This will be followed by a visit to the factory floor to see these solutions in practice, including the processes of modern door and window mounting manufacturing from pressing and tool maintenance to assembly and packing.
Herendi Porcelánmanufaktúra Zrt. was founded in 1826 and today it is among the top china manufacturing companies of the world. Its traditional, typically Hungarian products of unique style are available the world over. Visitors will have the opportunity to have a glimpse of manufactory production and will hear about the challenges this special production type faces in the 21st century, such as digitalization, virtual reality, technical progress and speed. Company representatives will tell us about their solutions to merge tradition with innovation. They will explain how they integrate the technical inventions of the 21st century with their strongest value that is manufactory production. We will also see how a modern, 21st century “Manufactory 4.0” operation is introduced in the plant.
The first step to a successful automatization of office processes using software bots is to be able to identify best-suited eligible processes. CloudStorm's interactive workshop introduces the considerations and methods that can help this decision.
When a manufacturing company sets foot on the path of Industry 4.0 it must face numerous decision points where not only the answers are not clear, but it is hard to formulate the actual questions or problems. In the first part of the workshop we will take an inventory of these decision considerations together to reveal the different aspect, possibly adding new ones to the list. The second part of the workshop will involve a group exercise to review the pros and cons of the most important aspects. The brainstorming of the second part will be supported by the spirit of a choice of local palinka specialties.
Bring your laptop and try the latest solutions available for production plant data collection applications from local edge computing to cloud-based solutions.
The workshop is held by Application Development Engineer András Sós and Business Development Manager Gergely Ádám Kis (Com-Forth Kft).
The presentation will give an overview of the most important technology related trends of Industry 4.0 based on global market analyst forecasts, international trends and the presenters experience, from the perspective of manufacturing companies in Hungary. The facts behind hype, reality without myths.
To implement the basis of zero waste manufacturing and value chain a direct connection of real time, reliable first generation data has to be established with business KPIs.
The value flow takes us from industrial IT to business intelligence. The solution has to be embedded in system integration technology to be able to use new and innovative solutions to manage bottlenecks.
The presentation will introduce the Industry 4.0 program and strategy of the company with the related advanced analytics projects. Topics will include predictive maintenance, introduction of a plant dashboarding system, and production optimization using ML algorithms.
Opportunities and challenges of using an advanced analytics solution in a live manufacturing environment.
The presentation will focus on the follow points:
- What does manufactory production mean in the 21st century
- What are the challenges for Herendi Porcelánmanufaktúra Zrt.
- How to integrate current Industry 4.0 solutions and keep the advantages of manufactory production
- How to build a modern manufactory that can be defined with the analogue term Manufactory 4.0
Popular technology trends and new solutions arriving in constant waves became a natural topic of not only professional discussions but also for the general public. Artificial Intelligence, Cloud, 5G, IoT are practically yesterday’s news. As such, ideas or customer requests to use these technologies for industrial purposes arise with an increasing frequency. The aim of the presentation is to give an overview of the extent these technologies (specially AI and Cloud) may be used in Machine Vision solutions, with emphasis on the possible advantages and practical limitations.
The first part of the presentation introduces the innovation ecosystem created by IQ Kecskemét Kft. The second part offers an insight into a "DIY" MES system that is a product of this ecosystem – a low budget Industry 4.0 solution.
The presentation will demonstrate the reasons why it is important and useful to connect a company training workshop actively involved in dual training, an innovative cluster, a university cooperation and a 3D creative space.
The challenges of creating a digital twin and an introduction to implementation with emphasis on the areas where this solution offers significant business value.
More than 700 production workstations in 20 plants, digitally connected and managed. What is the real challenge of introduction? What are the issues following introduction?
Does Big Data analysis automatically lead to success? What are the criteria for a successful Big Data analysis? Practical conclusions drawn from completed and in progress analysis examples.
Participants will discuss data collection, use and security questions focusing on the reality behind the hype of Big Data, Machine Learning and AI.
The new semi-automatic production line involves operators and robots working together. This setup includes several Industry 4.0 solutions. Human resources are supported by different digital solutions in order to increase efficiency. The presentation will introduce the assembly line and showcase these innovative solutions.
