This year´s Manufacturing Leadership Summit took place in Carlsbad, California and was attended by more than 200 senior industry leaders. From 6 to 9 June, the speakers and participants reported and discussed about the digital change and its consequences for all parties involved.
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dr. h. c. Detlef Zühlke, Scientific Director, Innovative Factory Systems (IFS), DFKI and Chairman of the Board of SmartFactoryKL , insisted on the implementation of global standards during his keynote. Without these standards, the realization of Industrie 4.0 applications would remain just a dream.
