The promise of Industry 4.0 is real. New design principles and digital technologies are profoundly changing industrial production, giving rise to "the factory of the future." The first manufacturers that transition to full-scale adoption will usher in a new era of industrial operations.
New digital technologies enable manufacturers to capture significant value through improvements in flexibility, productivity, quality, speed, and safety. It is essential for companies to implement these technologies in order to reach the highest levels of operational excellence. Get a hands-on look at Industry 4.0 through the BCG Innovation Center for Operations (ICO)—a network of capabilities and offerings—including model factories in France, Germany, Singapore, and the US—that provide immersion, experimentation, and training on all topics related to Industry 4.0. ICO is driven by one goal: helping manufacturers make the right choices to deliver massive and large-scale performance.
BCG has a set of proven proprietary tools and methodologies that focus on this fourth industrial revolution—a topic that affects every manufacturing domain and comprises advanced manufacturing technologies that are empowered by all means of data progression, storage, and optimization.
