– The meeting between humans and technology
Industries in Denmark are increasingly incorporating new technologies in order to optimize their internal production processes. Although there is still a degree of confusion over Industry 4.0, it offers companies a wide range of possibilities, from general development of a solid data foundation to use of virtual and augmented reality in production, repair and maintenance processes. However, technology cannot stand alone. It needs leaders and employees to execute and implement new technologies with respect and in accordance with the company’s strategy and end-users.
At this year´s Industry 4.0 conference, we will look at cases representing both success and failure in the use of Industry 4.0. The focus will be on the diverse use of the technologies presented by the terminology, with additional emphasis on the importance of the human aspect in developing and executing on strategies.
The conference will take place at the University of Southern Denmark in collaboration with the business magazine Børsen on April 5th 2018 from 08:30-16:10.
