Industry 4.0: Turning Challenges into Competitive Advantage (One-day Workshop)

We are transitioning to the factory of the future: computer-driven systems are increasingly monitoring physical processes, using a virtual copy of the physical world, and are enabling automated decisions. The phrase “Industry 4.0” describes this transition and explains how the production processes based on technology and devices that can exchange information along the value chain are organised. More and more companies are embracing this transition, attracted by the possibility of increased competitiveness or pushed by the choices of their competitors. The exploitation of the potential of Industry 4.0 requires a good knowledge of the key value drivers, the key technologies, and the different steps of the journey to achieve this digital transformation. Answering the request of several industry representatives, QLeap Academy is organizing a one-day workshop focused on the key topics needed to start the journey into the fourth industrial revolution. The workshop will use a unique mix of state-of-the- art developments and practical examples on Industry 4.0 taken from the direct experiences of experts from European and Indian Faculty.
