Come and join us for this event organised jointly by The Base, The IET and Siemens: Digitalisation changes all areas of our lives, it changes the way we stay informed, the way we travel, the way we buy things, and the way we manufacture products. Digitalisation is putting increasing pressure on manufacturers, at the same time opening new opportunities and business models. Digitalisation of the manufacturing industry is a topic of global interest – in Germany the concept is known as “Industrie 4.0.” New products must be brought to market in ever-shorter timeframes. Customers demand products that satisfy their specific needs. Rapidly changing markets call for a growing level of flexibility, the constant desire for increased efficiency means shorter and shorter development time and the efficient use of resources and energy. All with no loss of quality – or even improved quality, in some cases.
