From Knowledge@Wharton: Manufacturing accounts for about 13% of the U.S. economy. Should we even focus on trying to "bring it back," now that information and services - the "knowledge economy" - seems a more promising path?
Alan Tovey for The Telegraph: The 'fourth Industrial Revolution is upon us and there is an urgent need for STEM experts and their fresh ideas, says the Telegraphs industry editor
Jorge Valero for EURACTIV.com: The European Commission backs additive manufacturing as one of the pillars to strengthen its industrial sector and step up efforts to maintain the EUs global advantage.
Steve Twydell for ITProPortal: Rapid advances in artificial intelligence will change the way we manage logistics across a range of industries says Steve Twydell, CEO of transport management experts 3T Logistics.
Stephanie Condon for ZDNet: The maturity of automated technology used in manufacturing is all over the map, says Carnegie Mellon Prof. Howie Choset, but there are concrete ways to fix that.
Larry Turner for Industry Week: Industry experts agree, it makes sense to start now and to make small steps towards the big idea of IIoT. Partnerships can help the process.
Although some manufacturing leaders and their employees are hesitant to embrace new technology and hardware on the job site, these innovations are here to stay. Those who adapt to these new standards sooner rather than later will be ready to tackle Industry 4.0 and reap all the benefits it has to offer.
At the heart of IIoT is the way companies capture and share data. The ability to have data about inventory needs immediately available in the cloud and available to both plant floor managers and suppliers offers unheard-of visibility that heightens operational performance.
Japan is moving towards Neo-Industrial Manufacturing - Formation of Flexible Factory Partner Alliance
It appears Japanese factories, companies are looking beyond the IOT and or IOE; aiming to connect a variety of assets, e.g., machines, data, technologies, people, and organizations, as well as the existing industries and digital technologies, thereby bringing about the creation of new added value and the solutions to societal problems, bringing "Connected Industries" to fruition.
We are in the midst of a major shift that is redefining how our manufacturing processes and industry operate. The amount of data collected from connected, digital devices is growing exponentially, enabling more robust business insights.

Awe-inspiring power and superior flexibility is sheathed within the contoured casing of the HAWK MV-4000. This smart camera builds upon the previous generation by quadrupling processing power and achieving real-time trigger response using an FPGA. Its state-of-the-art algorithms make it an excellent tool for any industry, whether the requirement be code reading, code verification, inspection, guidance, gauging or a combination of all four.
