Industrie 4.0 for digital business processes
First publishedin World Highways
Industrie 4.0 is the common term for digitally connecting business processes from top to bottom within an organisation, including external site and logistics work. Industry 4.0 imagines a much more rapid digital transformational cycle with exponential levels of disruption, as opposed to the current linear trajectory. This shift will be driven by a blurring of and interactions between currently disparate technology fields, leading to total digitisation and automation of certain workflows. Key aspects include self-directed decision-making, embedded sensor-rich networks and robotics such as driverless vehicles.
