About the webinar

The manufacturing industry is changing is some very exciting and profound ways thanks to the Industry 4.0 digital revolution.  Around the globe, manufacturing companies are in the midst of a significant transformation regarding the way they produce products thanks to the introduction of digitization, automation and intelligent agents to their manufacturing business systems. This transition is so compelling that it is being called Industry 4.0 or simply i4.0.

Industry 4.0 represents the fourth revolution that is occurring within the manufacturing doman.  Following the industrialization, mass production and the computer era, the fourth Industrial Revolution will transcend what was began in the third via the adoption of computers and automation, and it will provide new insights and opportunities with intelligent and autonomous systems powered by the Internet of Things (IoT), big data and machine learning.  This revolution provides manufacturing companies the ability to expand their success in several very exciting ways.
