“Industry 4.0” and “internet of things“ will be key to future production concepts for global automotive manufacturing. Mass customisation and built-to-order production concepts are just some of the challenges automotive OEMs will have to address within the next five to ten years.
This webinar will discuss how to face these and other challenges, and equip you with the knowledge and information required.
The presentation will address the following questions:
- How can new robot technologies support cost-effective, high-volume production of highly individualised cars?
- How can robots support increasing complex and rapidly changing production concepts?
- How will we deal with the step from centralised control to decentralised self-organisation?
Industry 4.0 harnesses the inter-connectivity of machines, processes and products and prepares us for an exciting and innovative future, but we need to understand the challenges which are sure to arise and address them head on.
