Industry 4.0 for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) Workshop

Thursday, September 28, 2017
9:00 am to 5:30 pm


Floor/Room #: 
Library & Great Hall

Industry 4.0, a term better known in Europe than the US, is about the fourth industrial revolution, that is, advancing from embedded systems, e.g. programmable machines, to cyber-physical systems (CPS), i.e. communicating and thinking machines. The main features are:​

  1. Intelligent systems in production and logistics;​
  2. Highly adaptable and modular manufacturing and logistics systems;​
  3. Sustainable and advanced manufacturing technologies;​
  4. Automation technology and human-machine interaction.​

With Industry 4.0, new web and ICTs (information and communication technologies) promote smart, autonomous, self-learning factories, which can provide more individualized and customized products.​ The workshop seeks to provide information on industry 4.0 and, interactively with the attendees, to identify the needs and enablers for transitioning to a smart and intelligent enterprise.​ This will support the creation of solutions for production and logistics systems in SMEs, and the development of sustainable organization and business models.​
