About this event

Factories of the future represents the next big revolution in manufacturing – a transition from industrial age to digital age – that will involve complete automation and integration of systems across factory floor, and beyond. The ultimate goal of the future factory will be to seamlessly, safely and securely integrate systems across domains, hierarchies, geographic boundaries, value chains and even life cycle phases. The role of humans will change from being machine operators to providing intelligent support and decision making to enable the businesses to fulfil changing manufacturing demands. Internet technology, among others, will play a big role in making the transition to this digital age happen.
