Industrie 4.0 -- the term used to describe the widespread integration of information and communication technology in industrial manufacturing -- will inevitably lead to new types of work and ways of working, and will require companies to transform their organization and culture.
The newly released Acatech Industrie 4.0 Maturity Index research study, done with institutions in different fields and partners across every part of the industrial value chain, looks at the methodology for establishing manufacturing companies’ current industry 4.0 maturity stage and identifies areas where action is needed.
Practical guidance for developing an individual Industrie 4.0 implementation strategy that aligns with your business strategy

How to develop a specific Industrie 4.0 roadmap and carry out this transformation.
3D product design is the creation of a product in a virtual environment such the product has three dimensions (height, width, depth). The result is a digital prototype of your product, one you can explore in detail. Without digital prototyping, you’d need to use more budget-vaporizing physical prototypes, watch time slip away, and get to market later with a product that might not be optimized. 3D design makes your life as a product designer easier and faster, giving you more time and energy to devote to optimizing your product.
Designers usually take one of two approaches to 3D design and solid modeling: direct or parametric modeling. Direct modeling means you can push and pull directly on geometry. Use it for speed and quick changes. Parametric modeling means that the software maintains consistent relationships between components, so a change to one component is a change to all.
