Much is spoken about Industry 4.0 and many claims made about it being the fourth industrial revolution.  But what does it mean for small, medium and large manufacturing businesses?    How can the principles of intelligent and connected machinery, the increasing application of digital manufacturing and making the best use of data apply to your business?

This case study led workshop will set out the journey to Industry 4.0 – its challenges and opportunties – using examples from Ford, Nissan, JLR, London Taxi and Case New Holland.

You’ll leave the workshop with an understanding of what new and innovative technology will support Industry 4.0, how accessible it is and what it might mean for your business.
