Cover Smart Factory Roadshow 2017

Although today’s automation technology does already seem to be optimised, digitalisation concepts are generating brand new potential applications and business models. This publication shows what the various concepts for factories of the future look like in practice at leading industrial companies and specialist digitalisation consultancies. It presents specific examples of how Industry 4.0 has been implemented – including live data analysis using mobile devices, voice-controlled operating software and cloud-connected machines.

This brochure contains all of the contributions made by hosts and speakers. It has been published to accompany the roadshow, which is being organised by Microsoft Deutschland GmbH in close partnership with VDI/VDE Innovation + Technik GmbH and PriceWaterhouseCoopers. The roadshow is running until July.
