Manufacturing: The digital perspective

Machines, people and production are growing together into a high-performance package – and whoever masters the matching digital tools will remain competitive.

With digitization a new paradigm has entered the field of industrial production: communication and interaction are as crucial as the continuous flow of data, from development all the way up to after-sales service. AI, IoT, virtual and augmented reality enable new application possibilities.

Thanks to connected solutions, efficiency, productivity and quality increase in an unprecedented fashion,  opening up opportunities for new business models and improved competitiveness. With networking the demands on cyber security grow too: the risks must be managed continuously.
