At the Industry of Things World event in Berlin in September, leaders from across the industrial world came together to talk about the broad impact of the digitization of manufacturing. Many of the talks covered the overall industry transformation, with changes in product design and process and, of course, sensors and sensor data to improve efficiency and quality.
Some examples included:
These themes were also part of the small group discussions in the “Challenge Your Peer” and “World Café” sessions. For more on the sessions and talks, including Schneider Electric, Thyssenkrupp, ZF Group, Dow, Bayer and Heideldruck, check out my Twitter stream.
Data played a part in all of these these discussions, but it wasn’t the main agenda item. In my talk at the event, “Industrialize Your Data to Deliver Industry 4.0,” I wanted to bring data to the front of the conversation and focused on the following:
The Industry of Things World team will be in Boston on November 7-8. Join them if you can.
On November 14, I’ll be co-hosting a webinar on the same topic as my Berlin IOT talk. Hosted by IndustryWeek, “Industrialize Your Data to Deliver Industry 4.0” will feature John Carrier from the MIT Sloan School of Business and me. We’ll look at the strategic value of data and some of the practical examples we’ve seen of industrial organizations that truly leverage their data.
The Berlin IOT was just the start of the data conversation to bring data to the front of the Industry 4.0 and digitization conversation. I hope you can join the webinar coming up, and you can always get the latest on the role data is playing across the industrial world on this page.
