R&D with its active impact on value chains, portfolios and business models sets the foundation for corporate digitalization towards Industry 4.0. On the other side R&D is also passively disrupted by digitalization. Studies have shown that companies with highly digitalized R&D departments are more efficient and profitable, with faster development cycles and lower cost. Cost-saving modeling and simulations based on real-time big data analytics minimize corporate risks. New prototyping techniques optimize engineering capacities. But let’s keep in mind that R&D digitalization only makes sense if diligently embedded in a corporate transformation strategy. If companies want to uncover the full potential of Industry 4.0 and tackle the cost pressure, digitalized development processes need to be fully integrated horizontally and vertically. R&D 4.0 Strategy Day helps professionals to expand their knowledge about R&D transformation by highlighting successful corporate strategies, use cases and latest scientific insights in presentations, discussions and workshops, as well as by offering time and space for one-on-one and group networking attendees can schedule themselves with our app.
