The industrial era of mass production and automation systems has been very popular. Yet customers' increasing sophistication is turning the market into a demand-driven market, where production of customized products is no longer a business edge, but an essential element. Unfortunately, the new trend of production increased the complexity of manufacturing process for enterprises, and, in turn, the production cost increases every year. This is one of the major issues that plague many manufacturing industries.

Industry 4.0 was proposed by the Germans as early as 2013. To put it simply, the use of automated robots, Internet of Things technologies, supply chain network, using big data analysis on sales and production, and human-machine collaboration to enhance the productivity and quality of the entire manufacturing value chain. The Hong Kong SAR Government has put forward a series of "re-industrialization" initiatives to promote industrial applications and encourage intelligent production and digital transformations.

The course helps you understand the importance of industry standardization and the direction of Industry 4.0 when implementing digital transformation.

This course is designed to help you understand the foundations for improving transparency of your products from source to consumer.
