Industry 4.0: Effects of digitisation are changing the mechanical and plant engineering industry

February 2019 – Digitisation is becoming the dominant trend in Industrie 4.0. What effect does this have on the working conditions of company employees in the industry, how can the changes be addressed, what does the workforce do, what are the needs for new (international) collaborations and why do international frameworks have to be designed to handle data?

The study "Industrie 4.0" by Hamburg Commercial Bank deals with the most diverse effects of digitalisers. With analyses and expert opinions, the study for example addresses the questions of how the actors can use the potential for change and what a new understanding of data availability and usage can look like.
