The Promise of Industry 4.0 – Hype or Reality?
For the past 15 years, the trend of Industry 4.0 has promised manufacturing leaders process efficiencies and increased value by investing in new and hot technology tools. But the question remains, which of those tools truly matter, and which are all just hype? This presentation will address this question by dissecting three years of industry data that points to how much the U.S. manufacturing industry has—or hasn’t—realized the promise of Industry 4.0. Discussion will continue with thoughts on the state of Industry 4.0 and its impact on how organizations manage their machinery. Session attendees will walk away with an in-depth understanding of industry trends, Industry 4.0 adoption use-cases and best practices.
