INDUSTRY 4.0 DIGITAL FACTORY

We stay on top around latest digitalization trends.

Industry 4.0, Digitalization and Digital Factory” are some of the many buzzwords doing rounds in the industry these days. The basic principle behind Industry 4.0 is that by connecting machines, work pieces and systems, businesses are creating intelligent networks along the entire value chain that can control each other autonomously. The boundaries of individual factories will no longer exist in this scenario but will be replaced by interconnection of multiple factories or even geographical regions.

From both strategic and technological perspectives, the Industry 4.0 roadmap visualizes every further step on the route towards an entirely digital enterprise. In order to achieve success in the digital transformation process, it is necessary to prepare the technology roadmap in the most accurate way. In today’s business, Industry 4.0 is driven by digital transformation in vertical/horizontal value chains and product/service offerings of the companies. The required key technologies for Industry 4.0 transformation such as artificial intelligence, internet of things, machine learning, cloud systems, cybersecurity, adaptive robotics cause radical changes in the business processes of pharmaceutical / life sciences organizations.

Big Data Analytics is one of the crucial element of digital transformation, but understanding how to translate the outcomes into real benefits is really the key. Again, collection of data is of no use without proper ‘Data Mining’ followed by ‘Data Refining’. Data refining requires in-depth analysis and hence needs to be carried out by experienced individuals who have the requisite process knowledge, skills and expertise to do this. Such expertise is also crucial to define the related analysis algorithms.

p4s has been an innovation leader in the life science’s industries for many years and we strive to stay on top with our knowhow around latest digitalization trends.
