Whitepaper Series "Industry 4.0:“ Step 1
What Is Industry 4.0 – Where Is the Journey Heading?

Read our series of tips and advice for the successful and step-by-step implementation of digitalization projects for production companies, regardless of industry or size.

At a Glance

As a media-dominating hype, “Industry 4.0” has long since left the professional world and we encounter it on all channels in everyday life. More and more new authors are analyzing and evaluating the opportunities and potential of Industry 4.0 and making recommendations for action.

“Industry 4.0” therefore requires a pragmatic classification as well as a practice-oriented reflection. Production companies are quickly discouraged by target scenarios and procedural concepts if they do not match the reality they experience. This is exactly the problem: The path to digital manufacturing seems difficult to implement and is therefore not being tackled.

What exactly does this mean for Industry 4.0 projects? The key success factor lies in first setting appropriate goals, taking one step at a time, and relying on the right partners. Our whitepaper series provides you with a guide on this path.
