Industry 4.0
What's i40?


03 SEPTEMBER 2020: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

23 OCTOBER 2020: Port Louis, Mauritius

Since 2011, the rate of digitization – enabling massive collaborative digitalization – has been unprecedented, affecting key industries and sectors of the global economy.

The 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) – also known as Industry 4.0 (i40) – poses unique challenges in that they are combinatorial (physical, digital, biological) happening over exponential times with exponential changes. Already, 52% of Fortune 500 companies have been impacted by this digital disruption. Disintermediation is happening, forcing new business models to emerge. Horizontal and vertical strategic integrations are happening more rapidly, new target operating models (TOMs) – almost inevitably shaped by on-demand IOT/IIOT technologies – will create an estimated annual economic impact of between USD1.2T and USD3.7T in 2025. Digital employees – working in digital organizations where 75% of the workforce comprise of millennials – will necessitate a new approach in managing these Talents 4.0.

4IR/i40 seems to blur as well as unify the work of people and the work of machines. Like the first industrial revolution which is mechanization-driven, the second scientific-focused and the third skilled work-based, the fourth is machine-centric. The fourth industrial revolution differs significantly in that it relates to all fields of life. Within its framework, the industry processes and commercializes the exchange of information between people, between people and objects and also between objects themselves. The concept of autonomous work - without human participation at any time in the course of the process – is refreshingly exciting for the employers but incredibly disturbing especially to low-skilled workers.

The shift from mass production to a customised production demands more intelligent manufacturing processes to meet the emerging needs of the customers. Comprising of 9 pillars - which are Autonomous Robot, Simulation, System Integration (vertical, horizontal and end-to-end), Industrial Internet of Things, Cyber Security, Cloud Computing, Additive Manufacturing, Augmented Reality and Big Data, 4IR/i40 uses Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) to create SMART Production. This effectively efficient outcome propagates through the entire economic value chain, creating tidal waves of changes across all industries and sectors.

In this one-day Masterclass, our International Guest Speakers will present 12 annual case studies on Strategy 4.0, Process/TOM 4.0, Technology 4.0 and Human Capital 4.0 which benchmark successful business cases and discuss implementation-focused Crucial Enablers, extracting insights and lessons learnt from the 4IR/i40 experts and industry peers.
