In a small world where trade is the new global driving force conquering countries and continents alike, international competitiveness is becoming the ultimate challenge. It requires high quality products manufactured with state-of-the-art technologies at low cost under the assumption of highly efficient operations management as well as clear corporate goals and strategy. This in turn is based on improved engineering training and education, relevant applied research and an active interaction between academia and industry. The conference theme is:

“Knowledge valorisation in the age of digitalization”

The International Conference on Competitive Manufacturing (COMA ’19) is taking place for the seventh time. The main objective of the conference is to present recent developments, research results and industrial experience related to knowledge valorisation under the current conditions of overwhelming digitalisation particularly in the field of manufacturing. A further objective of the conference is to be a generator of innovative ideas and fruitful collaboration both locally and abroad.
