A review at the ERP-event-days

„70 percent of all companies make use of a fax machine or the ´good old` copier rather than using modern technologies“, this is a statement made by FIR´s Managing Director Prof. Volker Stich in his opening speech to the 21st Aachener ERP-days.
From June 2nd to 5th more than 100 ERP-experts from all over Germany met at the Cluster Logistics of the RWTH Aachen Campus. They discussed how production- and business processes can be better organized by means of modern technologies and systems and how the efficiency of enterprises can be sustainably increased.
By best tradition the event of the FIR was composed of a praxis-oriented day with workshops concerning the topics ERP- and maintenance management, a trade fair with considerable ERP-suppliers as well as a symposium. Fitting to the the event`s motto „ ERP – demonstrating potential“ the ERP event took place in the new building of the FIR.
