EMO review 2017
More than 130,000 visitors attended the much anticipated EMO Hannover 2017 fair to discover the current design trends in the metalworking sector. One big topic which was buzzing around the fair was ‘Industry 4.0’. It was certainly an opportunity to measure just how far the metal working industry has come in the digitalization of the metal machine processes.

Most companies talk about I 4.0 , but very few know what it really means.
The challenges of transitioning towards Industry 4.0 are extensive, yet quite simple. The needs and demands of 4.0 include: innovative strategies, processes, products, services and customer relationships. The factories themselves face the challenge of becoming smart factories which will deal with massive amounts of digital info being processed, IoT, self-optimization, and self-configuration with machines working with both machines and humans. 4.0 will also have new implications for staff, stakeholders and users. While Industry 4.0 offers an exciting prospect for manufacturing techniques.

Service design as an instrument for focusing on people? For service designer at Schindler, it is more than that. For their partners, they create services that are visible (though sometimes invisible to the user) and tangible. That’s why they like to think of themselves as conductors and consider service design far more than just a design discipline.
