Overview

Manufacturers are rallying to drive the Industry 4.0 vision forward with high expectations on the benefits that disruptive technologies - digital connectivity, advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, additive manufacturing - will bring to their factory floors.

As industrial production undergoes a rapid and profound transformation and traditional business and operating models and value chains are being replaced by new ones, how are forward looking manufacturers adapting, striving and leveraging new opportunities in a competitive, technologically-driven marketplace? How much progress has been made in Industry 4.0 implementation and what steps are manufacturers taking to scale up initiatives and achieve sustainable progress in digital transformation? In this rapidly evolving landscape, what is required in terms of innovation, skills, date security, organisational change and corporate vision to make progress in the digital journey?

The Financial Times - in partnership with Autodesk - will bring together senior business leaders and policy makers for the fourth of a series of high-level events on technological disruption in manufacturing. The briefing will shed light on how industrial companies are benefiting from Industry 4.0, scaling up their digitalisation processes and effectively using the combination and convergence of disruptive technologies to create efficiencies and capture value. We will take stock of what is working, what is not and explore how Industry 4.0 is evolving and where opportunities lie when integrating digital and production

    Panel Discussion

    Our panel of industry leaders, experts and policy makers will share their views on current state of play of Industry 4.0, sharing practical advice on implementation, scaling up and capturing value.  

    • What are manufacturers doing now to build their digital operations and how do approaches to digital transformation differ depending on size, industry sector and geography?
    • What key steps are manufacturers taking to scale up their Industry 4.0 initiatives? What is the role of a clear corporate vision to guide the process?  What management tools, processes and internal capabilities are necessary to generate sustainable progress in digital transformation? How are forward-looking manufacturers moving from particular solutions/projects to becoming connected enterprises and fully embracing digital manufacturing? What intelligent 3D model-based process can they use to manage resources and infrastructure more efficiently?
    • What are the risks and challenges to digital transformation in the current uncertain macro-economic and geo-political context? What are the best practices and strategic approaches to making progress in the digital journey? What is required in terms of investment, innovation, skills, data security and organisational change?
    • How are industrial companies grappling with talent and skills gap dimensions of Industry 4.0? How are they re-evaluating corporate structures, workplace business practices and leadership paradigms? In this rapidly evolving landscape, what workforce strategies are being put in place to stoke talent pipelines, ensure the right skills mix and upgrade leadership competences?
    • As manufacturers embrace the digital age, they are increasingly adapting their business models to offer new digital and IoT- enabled services on top of their traditional products. In which key ways are data and insights enabling the shifting of value proposition from products to services? What new added value services are manufacturers offering? Where are the monetisation opportunities of the integration of products and services?
