New contributions in EurOMA ’19 conference proceedings
Two of our research associates took part at this year’s EurOMA conference in Helsinki. The title of the conference was “Operations adding value to society” and attracted more than 500 “Production and Operations Management” researchers from all over the world. EurOMA is an international network of academics and practitioners from around the world who have a common interest in the continuing development of Operations Management. EurOMA is a European-based network with rapidly growing international links, whereby members can share their ideas, knowledge, and experience. It is a communication network that bridges the gap between research and practice. Christian Elbe presented the topic of “Manufacturing execution systems in international manufacturing networks” and Dominik Remling the topic of “Digital Technologies to coordinate manufacturing networks”. 
It is a unique opportunity to exchange research ideas on such a platform and to receive new input. The variety of research between universities is very significant and this is why a regular exchange is so fruitful.
Besides from sharing their knowledge about the future of international manufacturing networks Christian and Dominik had the opportunity to enjoy a company visit at Finnair Cargo. There they got to know the new world-class cargo handling premises. All in all it was a great experience to exchange and sharpen ideas in the unique environment of Helsinki.
