Explore the Core Concepts and Underlying Business Innovations of Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 succinctly addresses the convergence of IT and OT for manufacturing and industrial applications. But the it’s evolved significantly since the concept of Industry 4.0 was unveiled nearly a decade ago. What’s changed, and who is responsible for defining Industry 4.0?
This new revolution in manufacturing is enabled by four critical design principles: 

  • Interconnection — machines, sensors, systems and people seamlessly interconnect  
  • Information transparency — technology that augments the workforce with information and insights to enable better and faster decision making. 
  • Technical assistance — systems to assist humans in decision-making and problem-solving, and the ability to help humans with difficult or unsafe tasks
  • Decentralized decisions — the ability of cyber physical systems to make decisions on their own and to perform their tasks as autonomously as possible.

Join Mike Coxon a partner at McKinsey, Howard Heppelmann, GM, Smart Connected Operations at PTC and Rockwell Automation’s SVP of Integrated Supply Chain, Ernest Nicolas Jr for a provocative Q&A on January 12th at 2PM(ET) where they will examine how Industry 4.0 transforms business operations by breaking down data silos and allowing open communications throughout an organization. 

Discover all the possibilities Industry 4.0 provides in our discussion on digital transformation and how the confluence of data, automation, control, analytics, and actionable insights all contribute to realizing your industrial potential.
