Industry 4.0: Building agile, highly integrated and sustainable organisations

For every one worker in production, five new employees are hired elsewhere. This is the highest multiplication factor of any economic sector. The digitalisation of the production sector or Industry 4.0 (I4.0) will transform manufacturing companies deeply and change the global landscape. 

The value of I4.0 for manufacturing companies lies in the improved productivity, quality, speed and flexibility. I4.0 is all about agility, integration, hyper-connectivity, data and smart manufacturing principles implemented corporate-wide and in line with the company's business goals.

Understanding the key principles, technologies and concepts of I4.0 is crucial in reaping the benefits as fast as possible to convert existing manufacturing sites and their supply chains into highly competitive, agile, integrated, data-based and sustainable systems.

TÜV SÜD is committed to supporting companies harness the potential of I4.0 and accelerate the transformation of the industrial sectors. Working closely with industry leaders, stakeholders and government authorities, and with more than 300 projects of multinational corporations, and small, medium sized businesses, we are ready to journey with you as the trusted partner to embark on a safe, secure and reliable I4.0 transformation.
