Conference on Production Systems and Logistics

The aim of the Conference on Production Systems and Logistics (CPSL) is to promote exchange on current topics and knowledge on production systems and logistics and to create an innovative environment for the generation of scientific ideas. Therfore, the CPSL is partnering with renowned research institutions, publishers and scientific societies. Leading scientific experts are invited to present their research results and studies after a comprehensive review process and to discuss them with other participants. The subsequent dissemination of the reviewed papers will provide a wide scope and support for future research.

Keynote Speakers 2022

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Joachim Metternich

Head of the Institute of Production Management, Technology and Machine Tools, Technical University of Darmstadt

The high-performance value stream: genuine customer individuality in the shortest delivery time

The keynote will give an overview of high-performance value streams and how individuality is made possible without adaptation effort. The main topics will be the integration of the customer into the value stream and the enabling of value streams for the entire solution space.

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Rüdiger Daub

Head of the chair of Production Technology and Energy Storage Systems, Technical University of Munich and head of Fraunhofer Institute for Foundry, Composites and Processing Technology IGCV

Emerging research questions in manufacturing technology arising from electromobility

The shift towards electric cars and the rapidly increasing demand for battery cells pose major challenges for manufacturing technology. The keynote will show how the use of methods like artificial intelligence and data analytics can be used to increase traceability, quality and productivity in battery production. It will also highlight how the introduction of new materials and solid-state batteries will impact production systems.

Prof. Dr. Thomas Friedli

Professor of Production Management and Director at the Institute of Technology Management, University of St. Gallen

The Future of Production Systems

For decades the most admired examples when it came to manufacturing stemmed from the automotive industry. Companies like Toyota or later Porsche and Audi became role models for the implementation of lean. However, more recently lean deteriorated in dozens of companies to mere tool boxes neither really engrained in the culture nor in the structure and also the bottom line contribution to success can hardly be identified and described. The future will see a revival of once intuitively understood principles but now scientifically derived and fully integrated. The speech will highlight this development based on data and practical examples.

Peer-Review Process

In order to ensure a high scientific quality the CPSL uses a new Peer-Review System, which has the benefits that all researchers can have an impact on the contributions while a baseline standard is set by an established institution.
All submitted papers will be reviewed in a two-stage peer review process by experienced scientists of cooperating research institutes (level 1) as well as authors of other submitted papers (level 2). This ensures a consistent quality of the papers and reviews according to demanding standards through the first step as well as an influence of all participants on the quality of the papers through the second step. Therefore, each participants commits himself to review a paper by another author according to defined criteria and to form an expert opinion. All reviews are monitored by the editors to ensure the high quality of the papers and reviews.

Program & Key-Dates

The programme includes presentations of the submitted and reviewed papers as well as interesting keynote speeches by representatives from the scientific community. In addition, joint discussion rounds after the lectures will create a forum for exchange and the formation of new research cooperations. During the welcome registration and a joint dinner, the participating scientists will also have the opportunity to get to know each other and to strengthen the international scientific exchange by discussing specialist topics.

FAQ

What is CPSL?

The Conference on Production Systems and Logistics (CPSL) is an international forum for scientific exchange in the field of production systems and logistics. The annual conference brings scientists from all over the world together to discuss current research results and share experiences.

How do I submit a paper?

After you have created an account under Login, you can upload an abstract and, after positive feedback, a full paper. You will receive the feedback on the abstract and paper as well as the reviews via e-mail to the address that you have provided. In the login area you also have access to a paper template and a review template.

Why do I have to create a review if I want to submit a paper?

To ensure high scientific quality, the quality assurance processes of the Conference on Production Systems and Logistics (CPLS) are based on high standards that are continuously reviewed and can be influenced by all participants.

How does the Peer-Review-Process work?

All submitted contributions will be reviewed in a two-stage peer review process by experienced scientists from cooperating research institutes (level 1) as well as authors of other submitted contributions (level 2). This ensures, through the first step, a constant quality of the contributions and reviews according to demanding standards as well as, through the second step, an influence of all participants on the quality of the contributions. Each participant therefore undertakes to examine a contribution by another author according to defined criteria and to prepare an expert opinion. All reviews will be reviewed by third parties to ensure the high quality of the contributions and the related event.

How can I register for the conference?

In order to register for the conference it is necessary that you create an account under “Login" and then log in with your data. In the area accessible to you, you can upload your contribution and register for the conference.

What is the dress code for the event?

The CPSL breaks with traditional standards for stiff dress codes. For a pleasant atmosphere and collegial exchange, the dress code for the event is Smart Casual.
