With no universal definition of Industry 4.0, manufacturers are faced with the challenge of navigating their way through a seemingly complex and infinite variety of opinion and options to identify practical approaches suitable for their business. The implication is that manufacturing is undergoing a revolutionary change, whereas in reality it is more of an evolution, building upon an existing platform of technologies, theories and practices. So, the path to digital transformation and the realization of the advantages it provides, is less difficult and more affordable than you think.
