Do We Need an Industry 4.0 Lexicon? Webinar

Webinar
Wednesday, April 29, 2020 to Wednesday, April 29, 2020

The realm of Industry 4.0 is filled with buzzwords that have been used inconsistently to describe capabilities that can be hard to distinguish between other terms and prior technology. In order for the marketplace to have a clear understanding of what is being offered, PIMA IT Infrastructure SIG intends to provide clarification to ensure the industry knows what is being provided when someone offers these capabilities. This webinar will provide a means of discussing the merits of the effort and gather input on the development plans. This is intended to be a dictionary of terminology that can be used as a reference or a standard. Consistent use of terminology will help ensure all sides have the same expectations and can arrive at mutually beneficial results.

Register today for TAPPI's latest free webinar, Do We Need an Industry 4.0 Lexicon?, held on Wednesday, April 29 from 1:00 – 2:00 PM EST.
