New year greeting
Happy new year. 2016 is the first year of the “ connected factory ” . When IVI started in June last year , Germany’s Industry 4.0 and IIC centered on the US were taken up everywhere and became a big topic. This trend is likely to continue this year, but the big difference from last year is that we have seen what to do. I think you have also understood what should be changed and what should not be changed.
First of all, boldly steer openness in the era when the business itself will not be possible if it is not connected. At that time, in order to protect and nurture your company’s strengths, hide what you need to hide. And to promote the ” relaxed standards ” that are essential for designing the boundaries without thinking . Sites that have been strong so far will further promote the utilization of data obtained by IoT , and sites that think will be able to grow autonomously and simultaneously while aiming for overall optimization. Why not aim for the strongest manufacturing at IVI !
