The political framework conditions need to be right
Whether Germany as an industrial nation succeeds in turning Industrie 4.0 into a business model depends on more than just the companies – important framework conditions need to be agreed with policy-makers and society.
Digitalization will affect and shape all sectors of industry. Be it a revolution or an evolutionary process – each and every company must find its way to Industrie 4.0.
In the VDMA Industrie 4.0 Forum, the VDMA has bundled its internal association know-how. A regularly published newsletter reports on the association's diverse activities in the areas of digitization, Industrie 4.0 and OPC UA.
With over 300 actors from 159 organisations, the Plattform Industrie 4.0 is Germany´s central network for national and international activities for the digital transformation of production.
