The impact of change: how much can your supply chain take?
Hardly any other topic is as omnipresent at the moment as the change in values in society.
This affects our working environment, intralogistics, and the entire supply chain and raises new questions that we would like to address at our SUCCESS DAYS.
In addition to exciting external presentations around our motto, you can expect interesting facts about our software and the opportunity to network - for example at our evening event!
When? On May 23 & 24, 2023
Where? At Apollo-Theater Siegen or in digital livestream
All presentations on the main stage will be simultaneously translated into English – for presence as well as for online participants.
This - and much more - awaits you at SUCCESS DAYS 2023:
SCM Health Check - Are you fit for the future?
Prof. Tim Bruysten, richtwert gmbh & Sascha Barbas, GIB S&D GmbH
In recent years, many a company has had to cough up: Shortages of raw materials, skyrocketing prices, delivery problems - the list is long. As an entrepreneur, you did not cause most of these challenges and cannot influence or even prevent them, but every company has the opportunity to prepare its strategy and processes for them, i.e. to strengthen its defenses or even immunize itself. An external view of the company is very helpful in identifying workarounds, questioning processes, recognizing strengths, and uncovering weaknesses. Impulses and new perspectives can also help to become even healthier and fitter through one's efforts.
With the Health Check for Business and Supply Chain, ifm has developed a questionnaire in cooperation with richtwert gmbh that offers an entry point for taking a critical look at one's company and getting initial answers and food for thought. In the lecture, Sascha Barbas and Prof. Dr. Tim Bruysten will show what the Health Check can and cannot do and provide information about the results and findings so far that can be aggregated from the existing checks.
Values in Change - Digital Transformation Meets Values Discussion
Dr. Jörg Wallner
In times of skills shortages and more mobile workers, companies need to find new ways to attract or retain employees. Customers are also becoming more value-oriented and demanding when it comes to product selection. In the future, therefore, a strong corporate culture with a focus on sustainability, transparency, and other contemporary values will play an even greater role alongside the actual purpose of the company.
This concerns not only the way they are presented to the outside world but above all how these values are lived out internally - because in a digitalized, networked world, reckless business practices, and greenwashing will be directly exposed and sanctioned by society in the future.
So how can companies face the challenges of digital transformation and at the same time use their values for success and carry them to the outside world?
SAP Business Technology Platform & ifm supply chain XLNce solutions - a symbiosis in a class of its own
Björn Dunkel, ifm business solutions gmbh
"Available on SAP Store" - this has been the motto for the MRP view XLNce app since the beginning of the year. What makes this app so special, given that it is "only" a "spin-off" from the GIB SCX Procurement area?
What are the advantages of public cloud applications and why is the entire suite not directly available on the SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP)?
Björn Dunkel answers these questions and gives an outlook on how and when ifm and SAP want to move even closer together.
Panel discussion: Crisis management in the supply chain - The biggest challenges in the course of changing values
Björn Dunkel, ifm business solutions gmbh, Gerlinde Comisel and guests
New values have become increasingly relevant, both in the private sphere and in business. Companies cannot avoid dealing with climate protection, fair working conditions and wages as well as social tasks and taking a stand on social and political events.
How does this affect global supply chains? What are the experiences of our panelists? Gerlinde Comisel and Björn Dunkel ask!
Factory Optimisation Excellence - Optimising inside the supply chain
Björn Knabe, ifm business solutions gmbh & Dr Alexander Hoffmann, statmath gmbh
Material shortages, delivery delays, energy crises - many external influences on the supply chain can neither be averted nor influenced. However, excellent supply chain processes are not only lived out externally. It also depends on the functioning of the internal supply chain. A central linchpin for more profitability is smooth production processes without time hang-ups.
With GIB FOX you can plan your production process across all workplaces and all orders. No more delays because no material is available, the machine is occupied or the operations of the order chains are not exactly coordinated.
The AI-based algorithm plans with daily updated data from the SAP system take restrictions into account and give you the security of having planned all orders sensibly.
Self-sufficient replenishment & real-time monitoring of production - science fiction in production!
Nikolaj Schmitz, ifm business solutions gmbh
Production lines that independently request new material and provide real-time information on their condition and current production orders. Sounds like science fiction?
Nikolaj Schmitz shows you how this vision can already become a reality today.
Even without any ESA technology at all, but using standard components.
ifm SCM AWARD 2023
Bilgin Kilic, GIB S&D GmbH
Great success in difficult times - Investing in the crisis? New software for unclear processes? Right now, many companies are relying on software that offers transparency, a reliable data basis for decision-making, and uses algorithms and AI to continue where the interrelationships are too complex to play out all the what-if scenarios on the flipchart.
The most successful GIB users will be honored again this year with the brand-new ifm SCM AWARD!

Keynote: stabilize. balance. reimagine. How stable is your supply chain?
How vulnerable are our globally networked supply chains? Do the strategies that have been successful so far need to be changed or is it better to wait and see? Was it all due to the pandemic? Or have existing weaknesses rather been uncovered?
The Managing Directors Volker Blöchl, Nadine Rahman and Björn Dunkel
30 years after the company was founded, GIB is finally disappearing from the market. This not only makes sense for the company and its services but also brings many advantages for the customer.
