Industry 4.0 Drives Digital TransformationIs your company ready for the new industrial revolution?

Industry 4.0 represents the fourth stage of industrial (r)evolution. It is a combination of physical assets and advanced technologies that communicate, analyze, and process data and information.

It is transforming manufacturing and supply chain processes through connectivity and thereby enabling the use of innovative technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and internet of things (IoT) to improve automation, communication and use of real-time data. This enables organizations and customers to be more flexible and responsive and enhances intelligent, data-driven decisions.

By applying these technologies and principles, service, efficiency, quality and safety of industrial processes can all be increased. New smart products, services and business models can also be developed that will fully exploit the potential of IoT, autonomous technologies and real-time supply chains synchronization.

Industry 4.0 thus unlocks further improvement potentials and expands business opportunities from product-based to service-based revenue streams.

Why Industry 4.0?

The smart combination of lean production with the possibilities of Industry 4.0 makes industrial companies faster, more flexible and more adaptable and at the same time opens up new revenue and value creation potential.

  • Digital transformation can accelerate business processes and thus create competitive advantages. Throughput times from development to production can be reduced by 30%, throughput times in the administrative area by up to 80%.
  • Digitization helps to avoid or automate interfaces. As a result, manual processes can be partially eliminated or transferred to workflows. People only have to make decisions, non-value-adding activities are reduced.
  • In high-wage countries, digitization helps to drastically reduce personnel costs. The greatest potential lies in the automation of manual interfaces, the use of RPAs, the integration of development, industrial engineering and production, and the automated creation of complex documents such as assembly instructions and work orders.
  • Industry 4.0 forms the technological basis for the Factory of the Future.

Industry 4.0 is currently a topic of
discussion in almost all organizations

All industries are expected to embrace digital transformation (some have already launched initiatives) – in different rates and ways.

  • Digitalization will transform any business even more than the internet did.
  • Although the general direction of Industry 4.0 is clear, the journey each company will have to take to get there is not.
  • And it seems to be a gap in understanding what the real value will be from adopting this new initiative.
  • Few companies are using new digital technology to improve their operations.
  • Companies are lagging in their implementation of digital solutions or are not ambitious enough when they do adopt what is available.
