How digitalisation is changing the world of production

What are the effects of digital transformation on complex production processes? This question served as a hook for several expert presentations at XTalk, a lecture and discussion forum at Kathrein, Rosenheim. Among the guests were Holger Wieprecht from IBM and Andreas Tanzer from Deutsche Telekom.

“On the way to the Smart Factory – Important steps into the future, from Industry 4.0 to Cognitive Manufacturing.” This was the title of the presentation given by Holger Wieprecht, who reflected the development from the point of view of IT and consulting firm IBM.

Andreas Tanzer used a real example for his presentation, which was titled: “Business models are changing! The washing machine – a journey from yesterday to tomorrow”.  The expert from Telekom Deutschland talked about the digitalisation of production taking the technical development of a washing machine as a concrete example.
