Made Smarter, what’s all the hype?
Well it’s only hype if you don’t look to see how it can help your business.
Made Smarter is the UK term for what the German government called the Industry 4.0 or the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Indeed both Made Smarter and Industry 4.0 can cover so many things, from cloud-based analytics working out your preventative maintenance program, down to the ability to cost effectively make bespoke products by using automation and data, without the cost and overhead of traditional customised products.

- Collecting and using the data you have in your machines and on your shop floor
- Channelling data to your MES or ERP systems
- Using latest digital connectivity to make your site ‘smarter’ and more efficient
