The European EMS industry: Numbers, Data, Facts and how to move forward
Speaker: Dipl.-Ing. Dieter G. Weiss | in4ma - Marktstatistiken & Analysen

Dipl. Ing. Dieter G. Weiss has been working in the electronics industry for forty years. After starting as a process engineer with a focus on galvanic processes, his career path led him through the stations of quality manager, plant manager and technical director to managing director and shareholder. On the technical side, Dieter G. Weiss initially worked on ceramic hybrid circuits, thin-film magnetic heads, printed circuit boards and base materials for the electronics industry. After additional studies in business administration in the evenings, he worked as managing director and after MBO as a successful entrepreneur in the electronics industry. For twelve years he has also fulfilled his social responsibility as a publicly appointed and sworn expert at German courts and has been working for 14 years in the field of market statistics for both hybrid circuits and the EMS industry. His market statistics have been known for three years under the brand in4ma (Information 4 manufacturers) and are marketed by Weiss Engineering.

The ZVEI Technology Roadmap 2025 and its significance for the electronics industry more
Only those who recognise and take up technological developments at an early stage can keep up with international competition. In order to make this task easier for electronics companies, the ZVEI has drawn up a 333-page technology roadmap, which it makes available not only to members of the association.
The ZVEI Technology Roadmap Next Generation supports companies in dealing with topics such as artificial intelligence, industry 4.0 or cyber security. The compendium, now in its fourth edition, offers a structured overview of many topics relating to digitization in the electrical and electronics industry. In addition to progress in the development of electronic components, it also looks at software, material trends and aspects of production, as well as guidelines and laws and the corresponding fields of application.
The special feature of the ZVEI Technology Roadmap is its holistic approach and outlook up to the year 2025, highlighting the process of product development as well as political developments and trends in research and education. The technology roadmap is a valuable aid for companies to identify and evaluate their potential.

Speaker: Bernd Enser | Semikron

After studying electrical engineering and business administration, Bernd Enser worked in the engineering department of Alcatel from 1990 to 2002. From 2002 to 2018 he worked for Sanmina as Vice President Global Automotive. Since 2018 he has been Chief Operating Officer (COO) of SEMIKRON INTERNATIONAL GmbH. At ZVEI, Bernd Emser is involved as head of the Technical Commission and as a member of the board.

Software-defined Manufacturing: Paradigm shift in electronics manufacturing, the 100% digital twin more
Hardly any everyday object today can do without integrated electronics. The exploding demand for "smart devices" means a real boom for electronics production - but it also brings challenges that are already pushing electronics manufacturers to the limits of their capacity. This is because their production lines are usually less intelligent than the products they manufacture.

An essential discrepancy comes to light here: the way modern state-of-the-art products work is based on their intelligent software - a good example is the Amazon Echo or Tesla cars.

In manufacturing, on the other hand, hardware is still the focus of attention: production lines are designed for a specific purpose. Changes to them are associated with immense effort and high costs. Certain parts of the value chain, such as assembly or quality control, are still largely carried out manually. This has been the status quo in manufacturing for about 30 years - but this type of automation has now reached its limits. In the long term, it is not up to the task of producing highly complex, intelligent and individual end products. The time is ripe for a paradigm shift: software-defined manufacturing.

The pioneer of this approach is Bright Machines. The San Francisco-based company brings together an extraordinary mix of manufacturing and software specialists who have already proven their expertise to the global leaders in their respective fields. Tanja Dzambazova explains how Software-defined Manufacturing is revolutionizing electronics manufacturing and gives recommendations on how the industry is preparing for the new era.

Speaker: Tatjana Dzambazova | Bright Machines

Tatjana Dzambazova works as Director of Product Management, Software Solutions, at Bright Machines, a San Francisco-based US start-up that develops software-driven manufacturing solutions. She started her professional career as an architect and worked in this profession for over 12 years in Vienna and London. In 2000, she began her 18-year technology career at Autodesk, mainly in the role of product manager for many new disruptive software solutions and as a global technology spokesperson. In her two decades in the digital design industry, she was Autodesk's first product manager for Revit and a pioneer of the BIM approach in architecture and construction. During the Maker Movement, she created Autodesk's consumer group and helped create innovative disruptive solutions for digital manufacturing and 3D printing, which led Autodesk to focus on Design+Make. She also led the Computer Vision initiatives and the Remake/ ReCap products. Ms. Dzambazova was also a leader in the development of the Visual Programming and Web Story Telling tools and she also led the Smithsonian 3DExplorer software projects. Before joining Bright Machines, she spent a year at Velo3D, where she worked as Director of Product Management, UX and Design on the software part of the overall solution, helping scientists and engineers push the boundaries of metal additive solutions for production at the industry quality level. Ms. Dzambazova is an author of technology books and an energetic, passionate technology influencer. She has spoken at conferences around the world, including TEDx and Future of Storytelling FoST, and has given numerous presentations on the convergence of technology trends and their impact on the future of design and manufacturing. In particular, she covered generative design, additive manufacturing, IoT, robotics and machine learning.
