Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 Training course covers key concepts of future “smart factories”, the cyber-physical systems and physical processes within these factories, and the virtualization techniques and intelligent decision making capabilities which would support managers and in leading these initiatives.

Industry 4.0 is an alternative term used for the German term "Industrie 4.0" originally revived in 2011 at the Hannover Fair, Germany with implementation and recommendations initiated by the German federal government. Identified as one of 10 the “Future Projects” for the German government’s High-Tech Strategy 2020, with immense potential impact on manufacturing ecosystems and connected enterprises.

Industry 4.0 is part of a “Future Projects” identified by many governments today as part of their High-Tech Strategy  Action Plans representing a major opportunity  to establish

integrated industry lead markets.

Learn how Industry 4.0 and manufacturing ecosystems will impact world of connected enterprises.

The program aims to help participants envision and lead strategic and technical elements of Industry 4.0-based organizational transformations.
