- International Conference on
Rapid Product Development

Messe Stuttgart International
June 10 - 11, 1996


The organisation of product development is becoming a
key task for companies in an increasingly turbulent
environment. The starting point for all considerations
must be the efficiency of new production techniques for
prototypes, the so-called "Generative manufacturing
methods" or also "Rapid prototyping technologies". They
are revolutioning the development process on account
of the rapid availability of almost every kind of prototype.
However, the attainable rationalisation and innovation
potential also depends to a large extent on the
organisation of the environment of these new
manufacturing methods. This includes the continuity of
information chains, intelligent forms of organisation, lean
project management, strict cost targets and constant
cost transparency, specific involvement of customers,
evolutionary quality management, selec- tion and
integration of partners, transfer of empirical knowledge,
and much more.

ICRPD ist the first international conference which sets
out to examine all aspecs of future product development
as well in detail as in their interdependence. Due to the
excellent response it will be held for the second time in
1996. For the new con- cept the numerous stimulative
ideas from trade visitors have been taken into acount.

- The 2nd lCRPD will be held over two days with
parallel sessions. This will ensure that all important
topics can be discussed to an adequate extent.

- The presentation of the papers is geared towards
the requirement of specific target groups - from
management, applications or science - which
ensures that the latest information will be provided
on a more needs-oriented basis.

The conference will be held concurrent with CAT'96, the
international trade fair for computer-aided technologies.
During a special show at CAT'96 new ways of designing
development processes by including the new
technologies will be demonstrated.

(There will be German and Englisch sessions.
   All sessions will be translated simlutaneously.)
