Digitalisation and Industry 4.0 Driver Licence®

Powered by German Innovation Centre for Industry 4.0

The First Systematic and Practice-oriented Industry 4.0 Workshop

Industry 4.0 has an impact on even your company

Huge Transformation

Industry 4.0 refers to the digitalisation of the entire industry. The term describes the huge transformation automated value chains up to flexible and adaptive production networks.

Intelligent Products

With the help of intelligent and networked production units, as well as the use of cyber-physical systems, new opportunities for efficiency and cost reduction are presented. New products, services, and business models, can also be developed.

“In Germany, lots of discussions about challenges of digitalisation are held without actually approaching them.”

“Industry 4.0 expects a completely new mindset which is not seen yet in many companies.”

Digitalisation and Industry 4.0 Driver Licence®

The Digitalisation and Industry 4.0 Driver Licence® is the only training concept based on a modularised and holistic framework.

A driver licence is needed to operate complex machines, such as cars, boats and motorbikes. That is the same concept behind the training we offer. Numerous conferences, meetings and workshops about Industry 4.0 are held in Germany at the moment. However, most of these events are very basic and do not talk about translating this concept into reality.

The Digitalisation and Industry 4.0 Driver Licence® is a profound and practical-orientated training course for SMEs, where participants will be systematically led to discover the challenges of digitalisation, and how to overcome them.

The 3 Courses

Thereby, concrete solutions, technologies and case studies about Industry 4.0 are shown. Within the 3 courses, all the essential facets of Industry 4.0 are considered. The evolutionary process for the realisation of the concept is also discussed with the participants. The Digitalisation and Industry 4.0 Driver Licence® educates and prepares SMEs for the future challenges. Concrete questions and pragmatic solutions are the focus.

The driver licence will be issued out only to participants who successfully pass the written and oral exam. The issuing of the participation certificate after every course takes place only after a written exam.

“The digital transformation of the industry cannot succeed without the SMEs.”
