In episode 24 we are joined by Dr. Jan-Marc Lischka, Co-Founder and Partner 5thIndustry to explore the world of Industry 4.0. and how manufacturing digitalisation will transform the future! 🏭

5th Industry is helping factories transform their operations into the digital world, providing applications that fit perfectly into IT landscapes and offer employees the transparency and flexibility needed to cope with any task in the factory.

Dr. Jan-Marc holds an extensive background in the Manufacturing sector heading up Industry 4.0. progression at Siemens for over a decade.

We start the episode by discussing why the need to keep up with technological advancement in the IIoT space is fundamental, lensing in on the key priorities of digitalising manufacturing. We then move on to what role the digital twin will play, and whether it is a significant innovation. Finally, we wrap up the episode exploring approaches that should be used to build up the IIoT space, why starting small with an incubation team is a determining factor between success and failure, and how we can encourage manufacturers as an ecosystem to implement AI and IoT into their supply chain.
