Enhancing the Digital Economy Ecosystem
Globally, the traditional manufacturing industry is in the midst of a major change, marking the dawn of smart manufacturing or Industry 4.0. Manufacturers today face several unique challenges as they struggle to stay competitive and deliver greater value to customers. A report by consulting ﬁrm McKinsey concluded that the Internet of Things (IoT) will generate an annual value of up to USD11 trillion by the year 2025, corresponding to some 11% of global GDP . Initially, the IoT value will be generated by smart manufacturing; this will be followed by smart cities and smart health.
Blueprint For Industry 4.0 : What Manufacturers Must Do Today
The manufacturing industry is no stranger to misconceptions and buzzwords. Collaborative automation, Industry 4.0, artificial intelligence, blockchain – the real reason we allow ourselves to spin in circles on these topics is because we’re inherently hopeful and practical people: we want to build better and believe there is a path to doing so, if only we could find the way.
