  1. Digital Production Visualization Gather Momentum

.

Extract of Abhijit B.'s insights and opinion:

In line with Industry 4.0 improvements, there are companies which have already graduated to advanced analytics and data science. However, there is a plethora of companies which still do not have a visibility of their own operations.

As the apprehensions around manual non-value adding activities continue, digitalizing production for better visualization of performance will gather momentum. Companies will be keen to embark on their Digital journey with basic connectivity and visualization.
