Industry 4.0 Workshop: German and US Perspectives
About the Workshop
Digitalization is changing our world – how we live, work and consume. Industrial production is likewise undergoing changes; it is becoming more flexible, more individual and, at the same time, more efficient. Due to IT networking, products and machines can exchange information autonomously and production can be controlled centrally and variably. All of this is being made possible by “Industry 4.0.”
Ohio Manufacturing Institute, University of Cincinnati and our Ohio partners invite you to a workshop featuring a Baden-Württemberg delegation of industry, university and economic development representatives. The workshop will take place at E100 Scott Laboratories on Ohio State's College of Engineering campus on March 27 at 1:00 - 4:00 pm.
Thematically the workshop will shed light on the activities in “Industry 4.0” in Baden-Württemberg and Ohio and will focus on two central topics connected to the fourth industrial revolution—the question of automation and the question of how the workspace will evolve into what one could term “Work 4.0.” By doing so, the workshops will serve as a dialogue between Ohio and Baden-Württemberg and provide ample opportunities for cooperation—connecting companies, universities and research institutions in order to tighten business relations and establish joint projects.
Visitor parking and walking directions are available here.
Baden-Württemberg’s economy and research landscape also offers promising conditions to unlock the full potential of “Industry 4.0,” the fourth industrial revolution that promises the merging of the world of production and network connectivity towards the paradigm of “smart production” where ICT-based machines, systems and networks are capable of exchanging and responding to information to manage industrial production processes. Building on already existing strengths in engineering, automation and process and production technology, “Industry 4.0” has become a key concept for our companies, universities and research institutions that will help to secure our economic competiveness and our capacity for innovation.
