MESA Ireland's July 5th Meeting Recap: Establishing the Business Case for investing in Smart/Industry 4.0

Smart Manufacturing/Industry 4.0 has been a hot topic in the manufacturing sphere over the past 12 months. While it is greatly acknowledged that Smart Manufacturing is the way forward for manufacturing organizations - not many people seem to know exactly what it is or how to get there.

MESA has been at the forefront of Manufacturing IT strategies for over 20 years. Smart Manufacturing/Industry 4.0 is the latest evolution and MESA is perfectly positioned to ‘Demystify’ the jargon and hype associated.

On 5th of July MESA Ireland provided answers and a guide to creating a pathway forward to achieve Smart Manufacturing by presenting White Papers, which have recently been released by a cross functional global expert group.
