For some years now, the drive specialist FAULHABER has organized an information day for its customers at the company headquarters in Schönaich in order to keep them up-to-date on the current innovation processes. This year, the event was held on the 21st September with the motto “Knowledge management”. Different presentations examined how closely this topic is associated today with current concepts such as “Industry 4.0” and “Connectivity” in the area of conflict between man and machine, particularly with regard to development, tools, products, production and communication between employees and locations. The subsequent tour through our own production facility clearly showed how and with which concrete results knowledge management is actively used in the company. The numerous visitors praised the generous information content of the event which provided many suggestions for their own work. The series of events will be continued next year.
