A practical guide to industry 4.0

We'll start by talking a little about the history and the inspiration behind Industry 4.0 as it's known, then break it down into the key elements and practical ways they can be executed using current technologies. We'll touch on the role IIoT has to play, and where it fits in today's manufacturing scene, and where it "might" be headed.
