Several themes animated by selected speakers were addressed during this IoT Time session dedicated to Industry 4.0


Theme 1: The ends justify the means: Technological complexity vs. business objectives

Too often, manufacturers think technology before they think need. They prefer the “technology push” to the “technology pull”. That is, they try and deploy technologies sometimes without fully understanding their use case. Through the story of the genesis of TEEPTRAK at a customer during a LEAN program, Francois Coulloudon will talk about the definition of the need and the design of the minimal technological response to meet it

He has participated in the design and deployment of several LEAN programs for large groups on 4 continents.

Theme 2: How to engage an IoT approach in an Industry 4.0 program?
