| Industry 4.0 & Digital Manufacturing |

Modern IT solutions, both hardware and software, are about to revolutionize the way automation is conceived, moving from the PLC to the idea of distributing intelligence directly into individual subsystems.

Starting from technologies ready for industrial application, the seminar explores the enormous potential offered by this new distributed automation paradigm, proposing concrete use cases already available today, without forgetting to look to the future.
