The ongoing digital transformation is driving innovation across a wide range of areas such as agriculture, energy, transportation and healthcare. Industrial manufacturing will face massive disruption as development moves towards fully connected, self-organising intelligent factories.
This will trigger significant potential for efficiency improvements, for instance by reducing energy consumption and preventing downtime. Furthermore, industries can utilise smart components to improve asset and supply chain management, enhance quality, and shorten time to market.
Manufacturing today vs “Industrie 4.0”
Advanced new sensors are already finding their way into modern manufacturing lines, facilitating informed decision-making. But this is just the beginning.
Today’s manufacturing lines are based on informed decision-making by humans.
