HOW INDUSTRY 4.0 IS TRANSFORMING FACTORIES

Industry 4.0 digitization and networking are enabling workforces, machines, equipment, logistics and products to communicate and cooperate directly – offering companies fantastic opportunities.

Previous generations of manufacturers could only have dreamed of the benefits of networked processes – the creation of value-added chains through all phases of a product’s life-cycle, from idea to development, usage, maintenance and eventual recycling.

Industry’s 4.0’s advanced networks make a wealth of information available in real time, enabling optimization through the entire value-added chain. Manufacturers can:

  • incorporate customers’ ideas and feedback from product development to service delivery
  • react at an early stage to the availability of key raw materials 
  • manage production processes in the most energy-efficient way – saving time and resources, reducing costs and emissions.
