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 refer 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.

This course will provide participants with an understanding of Industry 4.0 and the Smart Industry Readiness Index (SIRI).

Upon successful completion of this Industry 4.0 e-learning module, you will have a clear understanding of the following:
  • What is Industry 4.0?
  • The concept of Agility, of the Development Path and of the Target Functions in Industry 4.0
  • The 3 main key processes in Industry 4.0:
    • Vertical Integration
    • Horizontal Integration, and
    • Integrated Product Life Cycle
  • Design Principles of Industry 4.0
  • Key technologies for a Smart Factory
  • Introduction to Smart Industry Readiness Index

This course is specially designed for manufacturers who are interested in understanding more about Industry 4.0 fundamentals, consultants who want to validate their knowledge and new learners.
