Experts to speak on top subjects including CSR, logistics, sustainability, Industry 4.0, quality management and sourcing 

The third Texprocess Forum will be held on the occasion of the leading Texprocess trade fair in Frankfurt am Main from 4 to 7 May 2015. At the international conference, experts from the fields of science and business will present the latest knowledge on subjects of topical interest to the sector. The programme with over 40 lectures and panel discussions is now available online.* ‘This year’s top themes include Industry 4.0, in other words, the growing rate of digitalisation and automation in the industry, as well as quality management and sustainability. Logistics is also playing an increasingly important role. We are looking forward to fascinating insights from leading companies, institutes and associations”, says Michael Jänecke, Head of Brand Management, Technical Textiles & Textile Processing. Texprocess Forum is free of charge for Texprocess and Techtextil visitors and will be held in Hall 5.0.

The programme highlights include lectures on Industry 4.0 (Human Solutions, DITF-MR Denkendorf, Hugo Boss), corporate social responsibility (Hochschule Niederrhein), apparel in the European early-warning system (GermanFashion), supply chain collaboration (TXTe-Solutions GmbH), quality assurance in product development (Hohenstein Institute) and the international development of the OEKO-TEX Standard 100. Top experts will also take part in the panel discussions on apparel and technology. The lecture programme has been compiled by DTB – Dialogue Textile Apparel in cooperation with Euratex (European Apparel and Textile Confederation), GermanFashion, IAF (International Apparel Federation) and VDMA Garment and Leather Technology.

An overview of the programme

The first lecture block on Monday, 4 May, begins at 12.00 hrs with the latest insights into the subject of quality management (‘Quality assurance for a branded product’), followed by sourcing (e.g., ‘Procurement trends from the point of view of GermanFashion’), sustainability (e.g., ‘Move Smarter in a global product sustainability’) and logistics (e.g., ‘Supply Chain KISS – keep it straight an simple’). The lecture block will be chaired by H.-Peter Werminghaus, CEO, BTI Gesellschaft für Beratung, Transfer und Innovation.

On Tuesday, 5 May, the programme is split into two panel discussions and lectures on sustainability, social standards, national profiles (‘First scouting trip to Ethiopia’), logistics (e.g., ‘Process optimisation in the textile supply chain via RFID’) and quality management. The first panel discussion on ‘Making technology work in fashion’ begins at 10.00 hrs and includes important representatives of IAF/CMAI (chair), Setlog Group, Veit Group, Lectra and Bayer Material Science. The second discussion revolves around ‘The world of fashion going 3D – change of paradigm for today – and tomorrow?’ and is presented by IACDE. The participants include Gerber Technology (chair), Hugo Boss, Human Solutions and Hochschule Niederrhein. Thomas Ballweg of GermanFashion will introduce the individual events.

Industry 4.0 in the apparel industry is the theme for Wednesday morning when representatives of VDMA Garment and Leather Technology, Human Solutions, DITF-MR Denkendorf and Hugo Boss will speak and discuss with participants the chances and consequences of complete digitalisation in the sector. In the afternoon, the focus of the Texprocess will shift to quality management (e.g., ‘Optimised apparel for hand bikers‘) and sustainability (e.g., ‘Sustainable cellulosic fibre innovation’) while visitors also have the chance to discover more about ‘Integration of logistics in an ERP system’ and ‘Speed, security, sustainability – what you need to know’. The lectures on Wednesday and Thursday will also be chaired by H.-Peter Werminghaus.

On the last day of the fair, 7 May, attention will once again be concentrated on the subjects of quality management, sustainability, logistics and new technologies with lectures on, for example, ‘Compliance and its impact on today’s value chains’, ‘Quality assurance in the Far East and Germany’, ‘The lawful identification of your branded products’ and ‘Sustainable technologies for the garment finishing industry’. 

Texprocess visitors can also attend the extensive programme of events at Techtextil. They include the Techtextil Symposium (at extra cost) and numerous competitions.
