Think, plan, act
The FAST Industry 4.0 framework consists of three main building blocks. “The first one is a vision for the future of each industry, including trends, challenges, opportunities and risks. Here, we’ll also take a look at industry-specific sub-aspects of Industry 4.0, like manufacturing 4.0 and maintenance 4.0.
The second part provides the Industry 4.0 roadmap: a step-by-step implementation plan that enlists the actions needed to achieve that vision. These initiatives are clustered in waves and prioritized in terms of feasibility, ‘value vs required investment’, and business strategy.
Last but not least, part 3 outlines what is needed – in the short and long term – to realize the roadmap, more specifically the Industry 4.0 architecture with all the technological building blocks. In this last part of the framework, we also share our best practices for ensuring a successful execution: how to assemble a team, manage your ever-changing transformation plan on a day-to-day basis, and set up an Industry 4.0 coalition that includes internal and external stakeholders.
