Industry 4.0: The Future of Manufacturing

Munich, July 11-13, 2017
Barcelona, May 23-25, 2018


This three-day course delivers the competencies and insights manufacturing decision-makers need to stay ahead.

General Framework of Industry 4.0

  • Industry 4.0 encompasses multiple concurrent developments. Participants will develop a deep understanding of all its elements, and learn how to bring all the pieces together to generate true value for the customer.

Building Blocks of Industry 4.0

  • Digital backbone, advanced robotics, additive manufacturing (industrial 3D printing) and data analytics all have a key role to play in driving manufacturing trends and future-planning strategies. These crucial issues will be covered in detail.

Emergence of New Business Models 

  • Exploring the business impact of greater flexibility in scale and scope, and the evolution of business models in the face of additive manufacturing (e.g., long tail, complexity, printer farms).

Embracing Future Opportunities

  • How to maximize the value of new IP opportunities, address growing cyber security issues in manufacturing, and the implications and pitfalls of adaptive manufacturing models and their integration with traditional manufacturing processes.


Industry 4.0 - The Future of Manufacturing takes a dynamic and interactive approach to developing participant skills - through interactive discussions, lectures and workshops, and direct engagement with manufacturing businesses already on the transitional journey to Industry 4.0.
