Breakout Session 1
Industry 4.0: It is no surprise that we have become more connected. Smart homes, cars, plants and cities are a reality. This connectivity creates a wealth of knowledge to be harnessed. How does this translate to manufacturing? Internet of Things (IoT) or Manufacturing 4.0 in Europe is the natural evolution of the manufacturing process. The next evolution of manufacturing is utilizing the inter-connectivity of devices, tools, and ERP systems to harness the raw data to create predictive models to cut costs and waste, increase safety, deliver hard data to end users faster and where they want it. IoT is the future; are you ready?
