Value engineering, innovations – a direction for development of purchasing departments

The subject of this year’s edition concerns innovations and their influence on the work of a purchasing department. In the face of economic changes and an increasingly broader scope of technology use, the procurement function takes on a new dimension. Purchasing departments can become main value creators in organizations. According to the banner “Value engineering and innovations vs. Procurement”, we will try to answer the question: ‘How is value engineering manifested and how does Industry 4.0 affect Procurement 4.0?

PROCON Manufacturing 2018 is:

  • A carefully prepared agenda: Speeches given by lecturers-practitioners and experts from abroad

  • Networking: More than 100 participants from the group of senior executives who manage procurement processes
