NEXEEDit Summit 2022

Creating a successful smart factory with Industry 4.0 and IIoT

During the virtual NEXEEDit Summit 2022 we brought 10 experts from production, economics, and science together to discuss industrial digitalization. The result was an entertaining and informative mix of expert knowledge and profound, exclusive insights into current topics that affect companies in mechanical engineering and manufacturing:

How can we empower employees to thrive in a data-driven workspace? How can we use IIoT to stay competitive in volatile markets? What can Industry 4.0 and digitalization do to help us save resources? The NEXEEDit Summit 2022 provided answers to these and many other questions.
