What we stand for

  • The Forum for Digitized Industry provides orientation for companies in the discrete industry and the process industry, so that they do not miss the digital opportunity - even if they do not have comprehensive resources for realizing cost- and resource-intensive research projects.
  • The Forum sees itself as an initiative of the industry for the industry! Information provision and networking is our goal.
  • The Forum depends on solution providers and provides information that is absolutely independent of applications.
  • It is all about the here and now! Industry 4.0 is not only a future vision - today we are already discussing smart and efficient processes, aligned to customer requirements, quality and effectiveness - to achieve operational excellence through digitization.
  • The Forum does not want to exploit shared knowledge for commercial profit but rather to prepare for qualification of specialists and managers of the operating areas.
