The virtual impulse seminar offers an overview of technologies for increasing transparency in supply chains. We will give you an in-depth insight into the use of mobile sensor technology in the supply chain. You can look forward to an innovative technical solution for a networked, intelligent supply chain that integrates mobile sensors, gateways, 3D image processing, cloud platforms and digital services. As a result, quality-relevant environmental influences on the products as well as condition-relevant data from transports, such as geolocation, are continuously recorded and digitized with mobile and stationary sensors. Based on this data, digital services are provided for the companies involved, which help to identify transport problems at an early stage and provide further assistance in ensuring product and process quality.

Intelligent Microgrids for an Energy Self-Sufficient Company

December 5, 2023, 3 - 6 p.m., BIBA

Image: j-mel/

Manufacturing companies today are confronted with the challenges and opportunities of digitalization. At the same time, they are striving to produce sustainably and as energy-efficiently as possible. Many are asking themselves how they can do justice to the current megatrends of digitalization and sustainability. Could the two approaches perhaps even be combined? We would like to explore this question in the workshop "Intelligent microgrids for an energy self-sufficient company" and cordially invite you to participate free of charge.

Microgrids in the energy sector are known from applications such as balcony power plants and are being used in more and more households. With appropriate scaling, these or other alternative energy sources are also of interest for industrial applications. Visit our workshop and find out whether such solutions are also suitable for your company. In line with geopolitical goals and the daily challenges of production companies, the workshop will provide you with skills that will enable you to develop and implement intelligent solutions for your company. In this way, the energy management problems in the "Smart Micro Grid" are linked with the modern production economy "Smart Manufacturing".

The workshop consists of a theoretical impulse and an interactive practical part in which you have the opportunity to produce energy self-sufficiently yourself in our learning factory. Technologies, methods and concepts will be presented and demonstrated that contribute to a better assessment of the current situation in the company from an energy perspective in order to create a change towards more robust, sustainable and modern production systems - on both a small and large scale. At the get-together afterwards, you will also have the opportunity to find out about individual support offers from the stakeholders involved - from digitalization and sustainability to funding opportunities - feel free to talk to us and generate a tailor-made advantage for your company.

The workshop is organized by the Mittelstand-Digital Zentrum Bremen-Oldenburg in cooperation with the BIBA - Bremer Institut für Produktion und Logistik, the EIT Manufacturing project SmartPower, the Environmental Business Office, the Bremen Chamber of Commerce - IHK for Bremen and Bremerhaven, the Bremen Chamber of Crafts and RKW Bremen.

All of us in the logistics network have to master the same challenges: decarbonization, digitalization and AI, shortage of skilled workers, resilience in supply chains.

The LogDynamics Cluster and the BIBA are participating in the accompanying trade exhibition. The presence is - in line with this year's central theme - under the sign of networking in the sense of Industry 4.0. Among other things, the "Model Factory 4.0" will be presented, which shows which digital services on a platform basis are made possible by Industry 4.0 in logistics. We cordially invite all congress participants to visit us at booth LA/08!
