Businesses and policymakers alike recognize the huge opportunities for growth offered by digitalization, interconnectedness and new manufacturing technologies. Industrie 4.0 and similar initiatives in other parts of the world like IIoT in North America, Make in India, Made in China in 2025, and others will allow manufacturers to gain greater visibility into operations, improve agility, decrease costs and improve responsiveness to individual customer requirements, to name some.
But recognizing the importance of Industrie 4.0 is not enough. The real challenge for many organizations is knowing where to begin.
This panel discussion webinar, Managing the Digital Transformation: A Practical discussion on getting started with Industrie 4.0, taking place on September 26 at 11 am ET will include thought leaders Prof. Dr. Guenther Schuh, Founder and CEO e.GO Mobile AG and an executive board member of Acatech, The National Academy of Science and Engineering in Germany; Dr. Nicolai Mueller, Senior Partner at McKinsey & Company, Inc. and global leader of McKinsey Digital Manufacturing and Howard Heppelmann, Divisional Vice President and General Manager, Connected Factory Operations, PTC.
This panel discussion will look at the strategic approach companies must take towards an Industrie 4.0 implementation. Attendees will learn about:
- The recently developed Acatech Maturity Index Model report, created by Acatech, the well-known National Academy of Science and Engineering in Germany, that coined the term Industrie 4.0. This research paper provides a methodology for establishing manufacturing companies’ current Industrie 4.0 maturity stage and identifying areas where further action is required.
- An example of a company, named e.Go Mobile AG, that is using Industrie 4.0 processes and technology to revolutionize the development of electronic cars.
- McKinsey’s Digital Capability Centers (DCCs), a global network of experience and learning centers setup in cooperation with PTC to support industrial corporations along their digital manufacturing transformation journey.
- The importance of the right technology partner in this important transformation, and the reason PTC has been chosen by both, Acatech and McKinsey & Company, Inc., to join them in their Industrie 4.0 initiatives.
