Digitization in Machinery & Industrial Automation

The machinery and automation industry is changing rapidly—as new technologies, customer demands, and players emerge. The industry is moving away from its traditional role as the hardware-centric supplier of equipment. Increasingly, it is embracing a new role as the provider of connected production solutions and services.

Our Mission

The Center for Digital in Machinery engages with companies from machinery, industrial automation, and related industries around the globe. We help our client partners find answers to the questions that arise from the many opportunities and challenges of digitization. We work with machine builders, automation specialists, and component suppliers across functions to develop new competitive advantages, launch new businesses built on the evolving technical possibilities of digitization, and secure lasting results.

We invite you to explore our approach, examine our latest thinking on digital in machinery, and learn more about our impact in the machinery and automation industry.
