Practical tips for Industry 4.0

Companies are beginning to appreciate and embrace the concept of industrial digitalisation and the potential it offers to improve production efficiencies, reduce cost and be more responsive to customer demands. However, many businesses struggle to understand how to begin the transformation.

In a new white paper entitled Practical tips for Industry 4.0 implementation, industrial automation specialist Festo offers some valuable advice about how to apply Industry 4.0 principles in real situations to derive maximum benefit.

“Industrial digitalisation will have a positive impact on UK manufacturing,” says Neil Lewin from Festo Training and Consulting. “However, before embarking on the journey, it is essential that those involved have a common understanding of the core elements and technologies, and how their interaction leads to Industry 4.0.”

Festo has engaged with the Industry 4.0 initiative from its inception: as a user, manufacturer and trainer. It already applies Industry 4.0 principles in its main manufacturing facilities and offers training courses to help others do the same. The new white paper is based on the company‘s considerable experience and outlines ten practical tips for implementing digital projects that could help transform a business.

“Now is the time to make the most of the opportunities presented by Industry 4.0,” says Lewin. “Our whitepaper provides pragmatic advice on getting started, as well as links to other sources of information.”
