We organised a Webinar on ‘Lean and Industry 4.0’. Professor. Dr. Christoph Roser, University of Applied Sciences, Karlsruhe, Germany, and the author of the book “Faster, Cheaper, Better’’ in the History of Manufacturing, was the Speaker.
Dr. Christoph Roser explained lucidly where Industry 4.0 is worth investing in and when to go with Lean and the differences between the two approaches. He explained the differences between Lean and Industry 4.0. Industry 4.0 is a concept where the concept is to implement a one-stop system that is hard to improve. This is a technology-oriented approach, which focus on computer, automation and robotics. Industry 4.0 aims to rid of people (Lights out factories). The programme organized in association with the Indian Institute of Materials Management, was attended by Supply Chain Professionals, students and academicians.
