Value creation and new business models in automation
Whitepaper: The future of automation – Part 3
Like many other sectors, the industry is in the midst of change. Increasing digitalization and networking give rise to new technologies and processes, but, above all, create significant potential for automation and optimization. A completely new world of automation is being created. It thrives on the fact that the capabilities of control technology, IT and IoT work in meaningful interplay and can be ideally exploited.
Heterogeneous solutions of the past are giving way to flexible value creation systems. Rigid and complex automation systems are therefore gradually being replaced by open platforms that meet today’s requirements for networking, flexibility, individualization and speed in industrial processes. The overriding goals are process optimization and increased efficiency as well as the creation of new business models and higher added value.
The requirements of plant/machine builders and operators are changing
A major driver of change in industrial automation are the changing requirements of plant and machine builders and operators. This raises the chicken-and-egg question: Does increasing digitalization create the need for new opportunities and technologies for greater efficiency? Or do developments in the manufacturing sector such as greater individualization, increased competitive pressure and globalization demand digitalized solutions to meet these challenges?...
