Industry 4.0 in the DACH Region Report 1H2019
Industry 4.0 has become an integral part of business for key technology giants: Bosch Rexroth, Festo, PTC and Siemens, to name a few, are all turning yesterday’s promise of connected and intelligent manufacturing technologies into today’s reality. In fact, we are already witnessing manufacturing facilities capable of producing individually configured products at unit prices akin to those of series production. This expansion is also reflected in the increasing standardisation of Industry 4.0 processes, with bodies such as the Standardization Council Industrie 4.0 (SCI 4.0) forming in the DACH region and internationally.
