I think the Chinese OEM and EMS approcah to Smart Factory is fascinating. They clearly see the benifit, and their "Made in China 2025" startegy document has Industry 4.0 style initiatiives and automation as a coremerstone.  

The larger EMS companies in China would love to add 'smartest', to 'biggest' and 'cheapest' in their decriptors, so the race is on to be the comapnies that emabrance the digital transformation and ensure they use it to deliver customer value and market differentiation.

thank you for the feedback Liam. You are absolutely right, any smart factory strategy has to focus on delivering benefits to both company and customer, and where possible to the consumer...

I think strategies around AI and the social impact are not yet thought through. This is an important debate to have and one that involves government as well as companies and unions. Another article on this topic is coming soon!

Excellent article about the critical need for manufacturers to adopt a smart factory strategy! Join the revolution or be left behind..

Your point about the importance of manufacturers sharing digestable data to their vendors is key. I feel as though some manufacturers overwhelm their customers (and maybe feel overwhelmed internally) by the amount of raw data a smart factory system provides. It needs to be pared down and customized to each customer so that it's easy to read and offers obvious solutions.

Great points on Industry 4.0 Phil!

So you're saying we shouldn't be concerned about an impending AI Apocalypse in Manufacturing?
