(Near) future of manufacturing
The future is here. Digitization has significantly changed the way we live: how we learn, think, make decisions, and communicate with each other. Advances in IT are also revolutionizing the way we use materials and energy to construct buildings, assembly machines, and produce food and medicines. Business leaders broadly agree that digitization is the key trend to shape manufacturing for the next 5-10 years. This presentation speculates about a future image of manufacturing plants. Example of operational improvements illustrate that the risks along the path forward can be mitigated, so that investment into digitization of operations becomes a must for any global manufacturer.
