Industry 4.0 training

Festo is at the forefront of Industry 4.0. We are one of four industry representatives on the steering board for the German Federal Government’s high-tech strategy – the originators of Industrie 4.0. We use the experience gained in our own Industry 4.0 Smart factory to help other companies develop their strategy for implementing Industry 4.0.

Preparation is the key to successfully implement Industry 4.0. Before starting, managers need to have an understanding of the core elements and technologies, and how their interaction leads to Industry 4.0. Only then can they start to develop new business models and specific strategies to drive Industry 4.0.

Festo has developed two training courses, designed specifically for key decision makers:
