      The general topic for the conference SFI2022: Swedish French Workshop on Industry 4.0 is "The role of Humans and Data in Industry 4.0". Industry 4.0 and smart manufacturing describe optimized engineering networks and production with the objective of delivering smart products using digitalization.

      During the upcoming workshop SFI2022: Swedish French Workshop on Industry 4.0, you will be served a show room with the last applied research involving industry and academia regarding Industry 4.0 and smart manufacturing.

      The workshop is a collaboration with the French Institute for Services and Industries of the Future and Swedish ASSAR Industrial Innovation Arena. It is organized at ASSAR with the general topic "The role of Humans and Data in Industry 4.0". Read more about the workshop in the about section below.

      Venue: ASSAR Innovation Arena, Skövde, Sweden. In coordination with the SPS2022 conference:




      The general topic of the workshop is “The role of Humans and Data in Industry 4.0” including the following topics:

      • Analytics and smart data
      • Simulation and digital twin
      • Industry & academia success stories

      The workshop will be organized at ASSAR, where several demonstrators will be presented.

      • What skills are needed for Industry 4.0?
      • How can simulation and digital twin help improve the design of industrial facilities and reduce costs?
      • How can artificial intelligence be efficiently integrated in order to enable better and informed decision making?
      • How can we best integrate human workers in these emerging new production environments?

      Talk Abstract

      Industry 4.0 has become one of the hot issues for industrial companies nowadays. This deep transformation that companies undergo will not only change the production process or design but also how companies interact with the clients and suppliers. This talk is dedicated to new trends in Industry 4.0 and in particular technologies and solutions that allow companies to innovate and introduce new services for the industries of the future. We will introduce the different challenges that companies face today to implement and integrate these technologies and how to overcome them. A special focus will be given to human resources and their importance in the management of change and in helping the companies innovate in services. Finally, we tackle the interaction between the R&D sphere and the industrial sphere as the most important step in innovation nowadays. Examples and success stories will be given to show how this interaction provide the companies with a big advantage over competitors.
