Whitepaper: Industrie 4.0

Usability Design for the industry of tomorrow

Industrie 4.0, the high-tech strategy of the german goverment, is more than the Internet of Things and the linking of machines to cyber-physical systems. The challenge is to develop new business models and services, and therefore also new production processes that aim to make efficient use of the potential that exists from humans and machines working together and to capitalise fully on this partnership.

Work tasks, processes and environments are becoming more flexible. In order to make this a positive economic development, there is a need to integrate future technologies intelligently into operational organisation. This will change the interfaces between humans and machines as well as the interfaces between humans and systems.
