Digitalization of production processes, including the integration of networking capabilities into production assets, is no longer just affecting the discrete manufacturing industries. Terms like »Internet of Things«, »Industrie 4.0«, »The Industrial Internet« or »Big Data« are just examples for the diversity of buzzwords that are used. But what do these buzzwords mean for companies in process manufacturing industries, particularly regarding their production processes, production technologies and value-added services? KEX Knowledge Exchange AG together with execon partners GmbH will find the answers in their consortium project »Facing the Smart Future: Digitalization in Process Manufacturing« starting on 10th of November 2016.
