Presentation: IEC work for smart manufacturing – EN

The digitalization of manufacturing represents a stepping stone towards the 4th Industrial Revolution, which is also called smart manufacturing or Industry 4.0. This topic will become increasingly important for every manufacturer and every company over the coming years. This presentation provides an overview of IEC work that will enable smart manufacturing and how it fits into the overall Internet of Things.


IEC White Paper: Factory of the future – en, ru, ko

What will manufacturing look like in the future? How will humans and machines communicate with each other? Will our work environment adapt to our needs?
In the factory of the future humans will have to come to terms with an increasing complexity of processes, machines and components. This will require new operating concepts for optimized human-machine interaction.

Nimble, adaptive and intelligent manufacturing processes will be the measure of success. The combination of “virtual” and “real” in order to get a full view of the complete value chain will allow factories to produce products more rapidly, more efficiently and with greater return using fewer resources.

This White Paper will assess the potential worldwide needs, benefits, concepts and pre-conditions for the factory of the future. It identifies the business trends in related technologies and markets, as well as their impact on data, people, technologies and standards.

The White Paper was prepared by the IEC Market Strategy Board (MSB) factory of the future project team in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA
