JT Day 2023, 24.10.2023 @ SCHAEFFLER in Herzogenaurach, Germany

With almost international 100 participants - also ONLINE from Japan, the USA and Romania - the 7th JT Day was a complete success. We would like to thank our host SCHAEFFLER, the whole organization team and the JT project groups!

For the 7th time, the prostep ivip Association is organizing its JT Day – and cordially invites you to the cross-industry meeting of the JT community on October 24, 2023 at our host SCHAEFFLER in Herzogenaurach.

"JT for Digital Enterprise Collaboration" is the motto for the next JT Day, under which top-class international speakers will report on the practical use and benefits of the national and international standard format for multidisciplinary 3D backbone for digital collaboration in industry and give an outlook on JT's role for digital transformation.

The JT Day is traditionally hosted by the JT Workflow Forum and, in addition to the lecture program, also offers an accompanying exhibition of vendors from the JT Implementor Forum and an appealing setting for networking. The JT Workflow Forum is a joint project group of the prostep ivip Association and the VDA, whose mission and goal is to further develop JT as an industry-established process format for industry. The main task of the project is to specify current and future requirements for the application of JT and to validate them in cooperation with the JT Implementor Forum in the houses of the participating companies, as well as to document and prioritize processes in use cases. 

The number of participants is limited. Participation in the JT Day is free of charge.
