11th FACTON User Conference: Predictive Costing – Digitization in Cost Management

11/06/2018

The 11th FACTON User Conference, the annual summit for European costing specialists, will take place on November 29, 2018. The event location is the Hotel Pull-man Fontana in Stuttgart. The theme of this year’s conference is “Predictive Costing”, as digitization will play an increasingly important role in modern cost management in the future, e.g. in how available data is utilized. Alongside this and other forward-looking topics the agenda includes the latest roadmap for the FACTON EPC Suite and best practice lectures.

Every November European costing experts gather to attend the FACTON User Conference. Scheduled discussions revolve around the impact of current market developments on product cost management, operational best practices and further develop-ment of the FACTON EPC Suite, the leading software for standardizing product costing. “A constantly changing market environment and new technologies require our customers to take a new view of product costing. Right now, digitization plays a leading role because it is no longer limited to manufacturing processes and products. The meaningful use of available data is also essential. Modern algorithms are clearly changing the way the industry collects and processes information,” says Alexander M. Swoboda, CEO at FACTON GmbH. “This is why the theme of our event this year is “Predictive Costing”. Our User Conference offers the FACTON Community a platform to share their thoughts on these future-oriented topics among like-minded experts and discuss ideas they might not have time to contemplate during normal, everyday business.”
