Description

We'll start by talking a little about the history and the inspiration behind Industry 4.0 as it's known, then break it down into the key elements and practical ways they can be executed using current technologies. We'll touch on the role IIoT has to play, and where it fits in todays manufacturing scene, and where it "might" be headed.

Key takeaways 

  • Industry 4.0 is an evolving concept
  • It's looks different across different size enterprises, industries, countries, and cultures
  • Connectivity is key, especially the adoption of open standards
  • All of the technology, and the raw skills we need to deploy already exist
  • The ROI's can be significant, financially, and in human terms
