“Smart manufacturing and the smart factory”
“The challenge nowadays is how to adapt and exploit digital innovations and technologies in the industrial context making it a competitive advantage. Today we talk about enterprise 4.0, and no longer about industry 4.0, because a single technology is not enough to determine success or a single application domain, but improvements derive from the combination of new technologies and the integration of engineering processes , manufacturing and customer serivice. The manufacturing sector can win only if it invests to embrace and combine the potential that comes from the digital – robots, AI, bigdata, 3D printing, etc. – digital manufacturing is an important step, but only a first step”.
