Industry 4.0: Are your production lines as smart as your products?

The ultimate goal is zero downtime for the manufacturers. Experts reckon that we are now at 3.8, and that it will take a decade or so before we arrive at 100% Industry 4.0 manufacturing. No company will move from 3.0 to 4.0 in a single step. Despite its speed, the migration will take place in stages.
This session will explore solutions within the nine pillars of Industry 4.0 – autonomous robots, simulations, horizontal and vertical system integration, IIoT, cybersecurity, the Cloud, additive manufacturing, augmented reality, and big data and analytics.
