BCG has a set of proven proprietary tools and methodologies that focus on Industry 4.0—a topic that affects all manufacturing domains. Industry 4.0 comprises advanced manufacturing technologies that are empowered by all means of data progression, storage, and optimization.
Our Industry 4.0 approach has been successfully applied in many industries in order to identify relevant use cases and required technologies. The objective is to improve companies’ competitive advantage by realizing benefits in productivity, quality, flexibility, and speed.
