Applying Industry 4.0 to the steel industry

Industry 4.0 is a collective term summarising how the implementation of so-called 'enabling technologies' can improve the production processes in manufacturing. Enabling technologies, such as Big Data, the Internet of Industry 4.0 - will revolutionise the organisation of the global value chain by creating 'smart factories' designed to make an important contribution to the sustainability of the steelmaking process. The Future Steel Forum will look at how innovative technology can be brought together with the sole intention of revolutionising the way steel is made.
