Presentation Summary

Industry 4.0, IIOT, smart manufacturing, digitalization - various initiatives around the world are driving the emergence of advanced technologies within manufacturing. After the term "Industry 4.0" originally noted first ever back in 2011, today this movement developed a momentum worth the term "fourth industrial revolution". But how much of the hype of digitalization is actually applicable to manufacturing? During this session the audience learns how Siemens steadily improved their manufacturing operations by applying an own definition of digitalization called Digital Enterprise Suite. Furthermore, additional use cases will be introduced reaching from Digital Twins over machine learning towards predictive maintenance embracing the overall concept of Industry 4.0 and ultimately benefit to manufacturers, customers and suppliers such as machine builders.
