ABOUT THE INDUSTRY 4.0 FUNDAMENTALS E-LEARNING COURSE

In 2011, the German Government coined the term Industrie 4.0, addressing the fourth industrial revolution as the next stage in the organisation and control of the entire value stream along the life cycle of a product. Since then, many manufacturers perceived it as a complex topic, something far beyond their reach and, consequently, out of scope from their strategies. Over time, Industry 4.0 became something that manufacturing stakeholders cannot avoid embracing, as it addresses new opportunities, overcomes internal challenges, and generates new business models through the integration, collection and analysis of data from all related business processes.

Many refers to Industry 4.0 as a revolution, others as an evolution, but what is it really? How can Industry 4.0 help to improve the manufacturing business processes, and how can it strengthen the value chain? What are the most common smart technologies that fall under the Industry 4.0 umbrella?

Many individuals, as well as companies, still lack familiarity with its basic concepts, are unclear how to get started, and do not have a systematic approach to quantify its impact.

Through this e-learning course, learners will get the opportunity to gain the basic skill sets of Industry 4.0. It covers the approach to implement Smart Factory Concepts supporting digital transformation, and one of the most adopted frameworks to structure a company’s digital growth in this area, the Smart Industry Readiness Index.
