“What excites me about Industry 4.0 is scaling it. Doing something once to show a concept is great but the tools and strategies of Industry 4.0 allow us to take that isolated improvement and make changes across an entire business. That delivers the order of magnitude improvements we expect of an industrial revolution.”
