“While I’ve heard buzz around Industry 4.0 for years, the Industry 4.0 Workshop brought the concept into practical application for me. Besides diving into the definition and theory behind each Industry 4.0 pillar, I found that the workshop helped me strategize how to best implement these concepts in my own facility.”
