Information Platform for Plant Engineers
Friday, 15 June 2018
Hall 9.2, Discussion Corner
The “Information Platform for Plant Engineers” is an initiative of VDI-GVC (The Association of German Engineers – Technical Division: Chemical and Process Engineering), addressing practice-oriented problems confronting plant engineers and all aspects of the production plant.
The concept, which facilitates the practice- oriented exchange of ideas and experience within a region, is now established in ﬁve regional groups. It will be presented and moderated by experts. Moreover, typical tasks of plant engineers, such as mobile maintenance, spare parts management, pumps, as well as future developments, will be explained and discussed on the basis of short contributions.
