European Commission (EC) figured out that is necessary to invest money in developing a new industry. The strategy is to improve the domestic production through a modern, sustainable and high added value base. The Thinking Act Industry 4.0 study, conducted by Roland Berger Strategy Consultants, reveals that the emerging countries’ share of industrial value jumped from 21 percent to 40 percent between 1991 and 2011. In Western Europe, the index fell from 25% to 16% over the same period.
To improve the domestic growth, EC is putting an effort in the factories of the future. They are agile, with production lines flexible and fully automated and connected. See how they work below.
