The Fourth Industrial Revolution for Every Industry: A Taxonomy of Industry 4.0​

Coverage Areas: Digital Transformation More...

Planned Publication Date: May 2019

Industry 4.0 encompasses the digitization and interlinking of the entire value chain of a physical, product-based industry. This taxonomy first examines the various components of such a value chain, and then further deconstructs and examines the most relevant use cases, applications, technologies, and key players under each. ​Additionally, we recommend that companies exploring an Industry 4.0 initiative should look at use-cases and technologies that are relatively mature, easy to implement, and carry a high, tangible ROI.
