Industry 4.0

What is Industry 4.0?

The term "Industry 4.0" describes the current industrial revolution. In practice it is more of an evolution than a revolution. Business and value creation processes are becoming ever more closely linked and increasingly automated. Industry 4.0 resolves the dichotomy between customized products and mass production. For this to happen, commercial, logistics, and production processes have to be closely interlinked.
