ModTech 2014 International Conference - Brief Overview
Understanding modern production organization becomes a key element that accounts for the structure and operation of the production system. In fact, this type of production organization should be analyzed against a much wider background: as it develops, industrial economy becomes increasingly complex, with two-fold specialization tackling, namely: multiplication of sequences in the process of turning raw materials in finite products; development of service functions that precede, accompany or extend the actual manufacturing process, with a view to improving the effectiveness of the factors involved.
Modern technologies must be seen as tools used to help develop industrial areas of activity which implicitly means improving life. Firstly, Modern technologies should be considered from the viewpoint of their impact on engineering and the advantages or disadvantages brought to society. Secondly, Modern technologies should be analyzed through their contribution to products quality increase.
Under the Scientific Patronage of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Silesian University of Technology, Gliwice, Poland, the ModTech2014 International Conference brought together representatives of technology and materials manufacturers, various universities, professional associations and research institutes, that exchanged the latest knowledge on the conference topics.
The second edition of ModTech International Conference was held in Gliwice, Poland, between July 13-16, with the Professional Association in Modern Manufacturing Technologies, ModTech, as main organizer, and the Silesian University of Technology, Gliwice-Poland, the Maritime University of Constanta-Romania, the Technical University of Chisinau-Republic of Moldova and the Donetsk National Technical University, Donetsk-Ukraine as co-organizers.
