Mr. Nigl presents from the point of view of a mechanical engineering company with production plants worldwide the challenges that arise in the digitization and implementation of goals to industry 4.0. GROB has developed the solutions itself and is currently one of the leading companies in this field.
The lecture is intended to show other companies which prerequisites are necessary and offer suggestions for implementing their own projects.
