Under the theme “Digital Enterprise - Accelerate Industry,” SLS will address directions for the future manufacturing industry by showcasing various smart factory solutions. This year, SLS will introduce application proposals for the digitalization in industry fields such as electronics in which the local market is highly specialized, and also the cloud-based open IoT operating system “MindSphere”. In particular, SLS will set up a stage at its exhibition booth and will introduce the latest industry trends to visitors.
“The directions for the future of industry and the industrial workflow are undergoing a rapid change due to the development of IT solutions including AI, machine learning and digital marketplace.” said Dieter Schletterer, Head of Digital Factory, and Process Industries & Drives Division at SLS. “With this in mind, it is necessary for organizations to develop new business models through innovative future technologies, such as AI and edge computing, as well as to transform into a digital enterprise - the factory of the future. SLS will actively support domestic companies’ digitalization strategies through various innovative solutions.” Meanwhile, Mr. Schletterer will deliver a speech at the Smart Factory Conference on March 29, held in conjunction with “Smart Factory + Automation World 2019.” On the topic of “Digitalization Changes Everything,” he will present the opportunities that digitalization can bring to each industry.
