Industry 4.0 Cyber Physical Factory!

Industry 4.0 Cyber Physical Factory!

With the ongoing transformation of industrial product development and production, and especially how Internet of Things (IoT), smart factories, cyber-physical systems and big data are driving technology capability – solutions must be ever faster, more diverse, more flexible and more intelligent, as well as sustainable, feasible, viable and desired.
