Where to start, and why you need to start now.

You may be already walking on the path to an Industry 4.0 transition. The road to follow will not always be easy. You might have to overcome more than one occasion in which you can’t see the forest for the trees. I-care is here to help you overcome the challenges you face, so your digital transformation will be as smooth as possible.

  1. Why Industry 4.0?

    With improved connectivity, big data, advanced analytics, Industry 4.0 provides a shift in any industrial company. It provides support in decision making on a real time basis. With Industry 4.0, service engineers don’t have to wait for a malfunction or defect to occur, but can act before it even happens. This means maintenance costs will decrease and uptime will be significantly increased.

  2. Where to start

    To take your business to the next level, you need proactivity, innovation, change and the help of wireless IoT-technology. It all starts with getting a better understanding of where you are at the moment, in which direction you want to go and what needs to be done for that. What do you want to achieve? And what specific data is needed for this?

  3. Obstacles to be faced

    One of the main obstacles companies face on their road to 4.0 is choosing the right partner and solution. Not everything is detectable, so it is of great importance to take a good look at what you need, in order to get the right data in return. In addition, challenges faced include financing, infrastructure, the current quality of analysis and the ability to upgrade to the latest technologies.

Industry 4.0 is not something that can be fixed overnight. It is essential to choose a strategic and staged approach.
