Humanizing Industry 4.0 – Lessons learned from Senior Executives #1

Introduction

By leveraging the power of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, automation, big data and the internet of things, Industry 4.0 has brought manufacturing and operational excellence into the digital age.

But now that factories and data are becoming connected, what about your people? How can you accelerate your digital transformation by putting your people at the center?

At EFESO and Solvace, we think a more collaborative approach is the key to success – and not just collaboration between people, but also between people and machines.

We also believe that this collaboration should be less top down and instead aim to facilitate collaboration between the shop floor and the top floor. This means shifting the focus from trying to control processes and instead towards looking at ways to further empower the connected worker. But that’s what we think. We wanted to know what you thought.
