How to become a (strategic) fourth industrial revolutionary - PwC
Manufacturers are adopting a portfolio of technologies powering 4IR and, as costs for these types of technology fall (and their capabilities and power rise), there’s a belief within the industry that they’ll continue to be increasingly implemented on shop floors across the world. But, as with any new disruptive technology, making it work is easier said than done.

Blockchain and digital supply networks - Deloitte Insights
A growing digital divide exists between organizations that embrace the transition from linear supply chains to digital supply networks (DSNs)—and those that do not. This evolution of linear and relatively siloed processes into a set of dynamic and interconnected nodes creates significant operational advantages for organizations, enabled by a set of wide and diverse technologies.

Taking the Future of Manufacturing Into High Schools - The New York Times
Schools are adapting educational materials developed by manufacturers and building special labs. The idea is to give the students a foundation in how industrial technology works and, in some cases, expose them to manufacturing careers.

Fold-away factories and modular assembly: Two visions of industrial 5G, one dream of digital supply
At the same time, it is a staging post on a rapid innovation path. 5G is required to make it work. “We can’t run lots of AGVs on wi-fi – that’s where cellular will help,” says Löser. It may yet mutate into a free-form Bosch-style arrangement, he says. “Once the wireless network is there, with the right availability and throughput, then we don’t need the cabling anymore.”

Bosch: The only fixed assets with industrial 5G will be the floors, walls and ceilings
“It’s a contradiction – this trend towards individualisation, and this drive to retain productivity,” remarked May. Bosch is betting on 5G as a means to deploy reconfigurable production systems, which can be torn up and down according to real-time demand. “If we move things all time, we don’t want to mess with cables,” he said.

He explained: “Our solution will have very few fixed elements, and even these elements will be intelligent. The building will be static, but flexible. The floor floor will provide electricity – a wireless power supply to all the equipment.

How China's 'Cobot' Revolution Could Transform Automation - OZY
There’s a “factory of the future” being built in Shanghai, with $150 million in investment from Swiss-Swedish automation giant ABB. Slated for completion in 2020, the factory is a place where “robots will make robots,” according to ABB. But the cutting-edge robotics technology the facility hopes to showcase won’t cater only to heavy industrial needs. It will also largely feature “collaborative automation solutions” — known as cobots — that work with humans instead of replacing them. The facility is evidence of an emerging Chinese automation strategy that’s beginning to reshape the world’s approach to robotics.

At these factories, robots are making jobs better for workers - McKinsey & Company
Our latest research suggests that when robots—or automated manufacturing technology—take over jobs that are oriented around repetitive tasks, operators are able to move onto more exciting and productive work.

This was the case at 16 “lighthouses of manufacturing,” which were identified as part of a joint McKinsey and World Economic Forum project presented at Davos.
