LEARN ABOUT:


SMART PRODUCT LIFE-CYCLE MANAGEMENT

Applying engineering strategies to make a wasteful or hazardous process more sustainable might seem like a beneficial course of action but is it actually the goal we want to pursue?

Conversely, engineers can be headed toward positive ends yet be undermined by tools that will never get them where they want to go.

This session will present the ICT led solutions and practical examples that will allow engineers and designers to bring sustainability at the core of their product life-cycle strategies.
SMART SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT

More sustainable and environmental parameters will make their impact felt throughout the balance sheets and on the bottom line.Their impact will only grow in the coming year and likely in an exponential way. Supply chain strategy needs to look ahead and shift priorities to accommodate the change.

This session will present the ICT led solutions and practical examples that will allow Supply Chain strategists and managers to:

(1) Conceive and execute a sustainable supply chain strategy

(2) Seek the most pragmatic solutions ( applications, services and processes)
SMART LOGISITICS AND TRANSPORTATION

As fuel costs and taxes rise, the need to run more efficient logistics operations is increasingly important. "Smart Logistics and Transportation" comprise a range of software and hardware tools that monitor, optimize and manage operations, which helps reduce the storage needed for inventory, fuel consumption, mileage driven and frequency of vehicles travelling empty or partially loaded.

This session will provide participants with practical examples and ICT led solutions to:
  • Re-think their logistics processes
  • Standardize, monitor and account
  • Transform their transportation and logistics processes

Sustainability Virtual Summits: Smart BizOps

  • Explores how corporations can reduce their environmental impact and become more socially responsible, while maintaining or even improving¬†financial bottom lines.
  • Discusses initiatives industry sectors have undertaken to transform their Business Operations
  • Explains how the ICT sector can create an even bigger impact by introducing innovative services that other industries may benefit from across their business processes.

Smart Product Life-Cycle Management

This session will present the ICT led solutions and practical examples that will allow engineers and designers:

  • To ensure that all materials and energy inputs and outputs are as inherently non-hazardous as possible.
  • To prevent waste rather than to treat or clean up waste after it is formed.
  • To separate and purify operations to minimize energy consumption and materials use.
  • To design products, processes, and systems to maximize mass, energy, space, and time efficiency.
  • To target durability rather than immortality
  • To meet needs and minimize excess
  • To minimize material diversity
  • To integrate material and energy flows
  • To design products, processes for performance in a commercial "afterlife."
  • To use renewable rather than depleting material and energy


Smart Supply Chain Management

This session will present the ICT led solutions and practical examples that will allow Supply Chain strategists and managers to:

    • Collaborative Physical Logistics
    • Reverse Logistics: product recycling, packaging, recycling, returnable assets
    • Demand Fluctuation Management
    • Identification and Labeling
    • Efficient Assets: Energy, Vehicles, Buildings
