The Industrial Internet of Things and Industry 4.0
Industry 4.0 and the internet of things is one of the most pervasive technologies identified by the 2017 MHI annual industry report. Industry 4.0 signals the arrival of IT on the shop floor, and stands to be as big a disruptor of the industry as the steam engine, linear assembly and automation were before it. The 2017 MHI Annual Industry Report, in collaboration with Deloitte, reflects the views of 1,100 manufacturing and supply chain leaders on this important topic. To stay on top of the accelerating pace of change, MHI is embarking on a series of video updates on topics covered in the 2017 report; focusing on projections from leading firms and real-world case studies of the benefits these trends and technologies are having on supply chains and global commerce.
