Dates you should not miss #MeetUs
This year's list of exciting talks, events and trade shows is long. We are looking forward to get together to network and to drive innovation.
Our future is based on our tradition
New technologies make the unimaginable possible and from science fiction comes reality. Often our traditions are forgotten.
Futurists are convinced that society will change more in the next two decades than it has in the past 300 years. We allow technology to make our lives easier. Like fine electromagnetic roots, it weaves itself into our tissue structure and becomes part of our future. Digital networking encompasses people and organisations and has a lasting influence on the processes of our daily lives as well as in companies and organisations.
Being digital is more than developing a software
And has never been more experimental than it is today ...
... with technology influencing our decisions and even shaping our behaviour. This is having a huge impact on just about every aspect of society, from businesses to governments, education, the list is endless. The world as we knew it and the world we need to get to know have never been so far apart. This is particularly relevant in the production industry, as companies competitively race to digitalise their products and factories to achieve ‘Industry 4.0 status’. But what can we do about it and how can we master our digital minds?
Understanding the challenges of Industry 4.0
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.
