The Industry 4.0 Summer School gives an insight into the objectives and strategies of Industry 4.0, shows the current status of activities, and provides information on how to benefit from the ideas linked to Industrie 4.0 today. In addition to a theoretical introduction to Industry 4.0, the main technologies and processes for the implementation of Industrie 4.0 will be introduced and then addressed in greater detail in a workshop. The aim is actually to enable digitalisation. Starting from the process itself, the digitisation of companies will be introduced and then expanded on using hands-on examples. A model system will be used to demonstrate the technological possibilities.
