Industry 4.0: Opportunities and Challenges of the Industrial Internet.
The Vlerick Supply Chain Network is a networking platform bringing executives and academics together around current themes in the field of logistics and supply chain management.
Vlerick Business School and PwC invite you to join the network’s kick-off session on 2 April 2015 at the Vlerick campus in Ghent.
The fourth industrial revolution is on its way. It will be fast, disruptive and destructive. But it offers attractive opportunities for companies that are ready to hop on. Industry 4.0 is characterised by the increasing digitisation and interconnection of products, value chains and business models. The implementation typically represents a multi-year transformation process sponsored by the executive team. And here we find the greatest challenges for Industry 4.0: the lack of clarity about economic benefits and the new capabilities needed to drive this in your organisation. Will you be a pioneer of Industry 4.0?
In this keynote Stefan Schrauf will elaborate on Industry 4.0, its challenges and its opportunities. He will share insights and examples from a recent study with 234 companies active in manufacturing, engineering, processing, electronics and automotive.
