Digitalization and “the internet of things” is changing our world rapidly. CEPI is collaborating with StepChange Consulting and SITRA to publish a study to assess the readiness of the pulp, paper and packaging industry on the topic of Industry 4.0. In addition to the results of an industry wide survey (we invite you to participate: go to survey) the study will contain case study examples from within and outside of the industry to showcase thought leadership and developments.
CEPI and the publishers are still looking for further companies who are willing to share and publish their thoughts or case studies covering aspects of Industry 4.0 (smart equipment, smart products, network and connectivity, integrated supply chain and data analytics). If you would like to share your research or case study please contact Dr. Veronica Schey (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Annie Xystouris (email@example.com)
The results of the study will be available at the European Paper Week's high-level session on November 17th, 2015.
The survey will only take approximately 10 minutes to complete and covers the following topics related to Industry 4.0: 1. Priority on the agenda; 2. Readiness assessment; 3. Benefits; 4. Benchmarking across industries; 5. Challenges and next steps
