Industrie 4.0 in context

Today, technological capabilities evolve rapidly, supply chain complexity increases and global fragmentation of production and demand develops at a fast pace. As a result, competition pressure grows, especially from unexpected origins. Business as usual is no longer valid to respond to these developments. And above all, company size does not matter, company speed does.

The Industrie 4.0 era affects businesses in the customer life cycle, operations cycle and R&D cycle. A transformation is required that includes technology, resources, organization and culture to fully unlock the business opportunities. The ultimate goal is to become a learning, agile company capable of continuous, agile adaptation to a changing environment. That is what Industrie 4.0 is about.

But where to start? What are best practice approaches? And how can you materialize on the opportunities?

Get your – must know – answers to:

  • How to gain competitive advantages in the Industrie 4.0 era?
  • How to materialize on the opportunities in the Industrie 4.0 era?
  • How to shape vision, define strategy and  build a clear transformation roadmap?

These questions will be addressed by leading presentations, best practice use cases and an Industrie 4.0 enabled factory tour.
