Pharmas Digital Journey

There has been a lot of media attention regarding the term ‘Industry 4.0’, what it means and how it will revolutionise manufacturing in terms of flexibility, productivity, efficiency and customer interaction. The uptake of digital technologies is central to its successful adoption across the UK, and work is underway to ensure this happens.

January 2017 saw the launch of the Industrial Digitalisation Review on the back of the British Government’s Industrial Strategy. It aims to forge a roadmap on how companies in the UK can best adopt cybernetic technologies and make the most of the opportunities the digital industry offers the economy in terms of supporting growth, high value job creation, skills and improving national productivity. The panel will spend time reviewing and talking to stakeholders, influencers and large and small businesses to see how the design, development and deployment of technologies will support and drive Britain’s digital industrial revolution – more commonly referred to as the ‘4th industrial revolution’.

Industry 4.0 is a confluence of several major innovative technologies that are in a state of stability and maturity. These have the ability to transform manufacturing through tools such as robotics, advanced sensors, 3D printing, the Internet of Things, cloud computing, digital fabrication and simulation. Supporting this, new business and marketing models will underpin the new technology and manage a more organic relationship with customers and their requirements, linking all of them to the real world through smartphones, tablets and laptops.
