Webinar: The smart way to run your supply chain

Category: Webinar

How industry 4.0 will change the way you do business

Everyone is talking about Industry 4.0 − and it’s a fact that the Digital Supply Chain will change the way we do business dramatically. So the question is not 'if', but 'when' and ‘how quickly’!

We are bombarded with buzz words such as Internet of Things, additive manufacturing, the cloud, artificial intelligence, augmented reality and blockchain. But what do all of these things really mean concretely? And what can these technologies do for your business?

With this webinar, Vlerick Business School seeks to shed some light so that you can see the forest for the trees again and prepare your company optimally for this 4th industrial revolution. We will share some interesting cases that will help clarify what Industry 4.0 is all about. Furthermore, we will discuss the impact of this industrial revolution on future jobs and what skills and talents will be needed in these smart companies.
