As this shift occurs, whereby machines take on more, we should also see the creation of new roles, tasks and responsibilities that are yet to be defined.

Implementing and maintaining systems that preserve the integrity of production processes without the same level of human oversight remains one of the main challenges to Industry 4.0 implementation.

More than ever, it will be imperative to ensure data is clean, accurate and accessible as part of an overall information governance strategy.

Leases are a way to use property or equipment and pay over time.

Old Buildings Are U.S. Cities’ Biggest Sustainability Challenge - HBR
In the United States, buildings consume 41 percent of the nation’s total energy use, through lighting, heating, air conditioning, elevators, and the thousands of items plugged into their sockets. In large urban centers such as Chicago and New York, the figure surpasses 70%. As the world seeks to forge a path to a clean energy future, the simple fact is that we need to reduce the energy used by cities and their buildings.

Outside the hot topic of who gets to control the thermostat, most managers just want to know that the lights will turn on and the computer servers will not be interrupted.

How can we as designers and community engagement specialists close this perception gap and employ design to give transparency and humanity to the process of remediation and redevelopment?

Why Hiring Lags Behind Even as U.S. Factories Hum -
Across the country, companies have been slow to add capacity to meet growing demand as the U.S. economy has picked up. And even when they are investing, they often take pains to add as few jobs as possible. Xerox Corp. has broken ground on a $35 million expansion of a sophisticated plant making high-tech toner for printers and copiers. It decided to make the investment at an existing Xerox facility in Webster, N.Y., about 12 miles outside Rochester, in part because it would require adding fewer jobs than at the other sites it considered. Fertilizer maker Mosaic Co. had planned to build a $700 million ammonia plant. But last fall it dropped those plans and decided to buy the product from a supplier instead.

However, new Basel III rules released July 2—requiring U.S. banks, savings associations, bank holding companies, and savings and loan holding companies with over $500 million in assets to maintain higher capital levels—may result in allocation of bank capital away from real estate and higher financing costs. As a result, developers may find future projects less attractive.
