Industry 4.0 (I-4.0) represents the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The first three industrial revolutions were based on Steam, Electricity, and Digital Technologies. The fourth is based on “cyber-physical systems” that merge the capabilities of humans and machines. I-4.0 uses innovations based on artificial intelligence, IoT, and connectivity in industry, advanced manufacturing and the service sectors to increase productivity in a sustainable manner.
This 19th World Productivity Congress will bring together industry and academia from India and abroad as well as representatives from the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation. It will provide a platform for exploring economic and productivity development in India, and for ongoing international communication and cooperation. In addition to the Congress and the Trade Fair, there will be a display of adjudicated student posters with awards given for the best posters.
A trade fair that caters to the burgeoning industry in India is the need of the hour. The event catering to Factory Automation, Digital Factory and Warehousing will act as a catalyst to this growth and provide a definitive platform to foster partnerships in the sector.
