Industry 4.0 in technical application

September 28, 2021 | Jasper Jahn shows which conditions are important for the technological implementation of Industry 4.0 in SMEs.

In the "Technologies and Solutions for Digitalized Value Creation" project, we are working on practical examples of applications in which digitalization is used to optimize production and logistics processes. The aim is to generate substantial added value by having people and technology work together. As part of this project, we have developed specific technology-based solutions for the production and logistics environment that build on the internal processes of SMEs and are easy to integrate, thus paving the way for these companies’ entry into and implementation of Industry 4.0.
