Webinar On Airline And Travel Management In A Digital Era
The Fourth Industrial Revolution (or Industry 4.0) is the ongoing transformation of traditional manufacturing and industrial practices combined with the latest smart technology. This primarily focuses on the use of a large-scale machine to machine communication and the internet of things deployment to provide increased automation, improved communication and self-monitoring, and smart machines that can analyse and diagnose issues without the need for human intervention.
On Sept.10th,2020, the Internationalization Cell of SCMS NOIDA organized a webinar on the topic “Airline and Travel Management in a Digital Era" as part of the Global Talk Series on Management Practices in Industry 4.0. Ms. Barbara Wohlfarth, Founder, Reiserezept GmbH, presided over the event. She owns a Travel Agency in Switzerland called Reiserezept GmbH, which was started back in 2018. She has been in the travel industry since 2000 and has 18 years of business travel experience.
Ms. Wohlfarth began her discussion by giving a brief on the history of travel around the globe. She spoke about the inter-rail ticket in Europe and various other trails that were used to travel such as Shoestring (Europe to southeast Asia) and the Banana pancake trail which went onto East Asia into countries like Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Laos. She gave insights into the Computer Reservation System (CRS) and how it was introduced and how it prevails now. She explained the technological developments in the travel and tourism sector about how Alexa air tickets can be booked with voice command through Artificial Intelligence, how Google grew and established itself in the past 10 years from showing hotel prices, flight details, and prices and now established Google trips in 2019. She explained beautifully how AI is taking over the technological world and how it is providing companies and industries with data. She also gave valuable insights on the impact of Covid-19 on the industry and what the future has in store regarding the same.
She spoke about the prevalence of the NDC (New Distribution Capability) program and how it will enable the travel industry to transform the way air products are retailed to corporations, leisure and business travellers, by addressing the industry’s current distribution limitations: product differentiation and time-to-market access to full and rich air content and finally, transparent shopping experience. It provides the opportunity to address the end-to-end airline distribution process, e.g. shopping, booking, etc., and to deliver enhanced customer experiences. It helps gain more profit for the airlines and currently preparing business models for them.
Webinar On "Industry 4.0 impact on lean and agile production systems"
In logistics, waste significantly impacts the bottom line. Whether it’s in using inferior materials or inefficient manufacturing processes, wasted resources need to be identified, and resolved for a company to be profitable. This is where lean and agile productions come into place. Determining the source of waste and then activating a lean or agile production process can save any company money, resources, and increased profitability.
The Internationalization cell at SCMS NOIDA has initiated this year's global talk series on Management Practices in Industry 4.0. The objective of the series is to broaden the horizon of students holistically on management practices in Industry 4.0 and expose them to current knowledge and appropriate skills required globally in Industry 4.0
