The term industry 4.0 generally denotes the interlinking of industrial production with state-of-the-art information and communication technology in short, the digitization of production, which also has to be implemented at the Daimler AG.
The overriding goals in this project were to safeguard the future of our sustainability by increasing efficiency, quality, and customer benefit.
First off, we made the term 4.0 "tangible." To do so, we identified and evaluated existing ideas within the Group across all divisions and compared them with external approaches. In order to secure sustainable implementation, we established an appropriate tracking system at the level of Top Management.
In addition to quickly implementing some good and already existing ideas, we developed a 4.0 strategy and roadmap for the Mercedes-Benz production.
