Concepts and Technologies

Course Overview

For many years, companies relied on lean production concepts to measure all things, yet many wonder how it will fit in the age of Industry 4.0. Many organisations may ask themselves whether to void the adaptation of lean production system and jump straight to "smart factory" initiatives. Are there any real additional benefits of adapting both concepts simultaneously? What are some of the challenges of implementing and realising lean and digitalisation concepts? Finding the right combination of digital and lean can offer companies competitive advantages through cost reduction and increased productivity.
