Flexibility is the key to success, also in times of change

The German mechanical and plant engineering industry is internationally renowned. The best-known German companies and market leaders in this industry are currently feeling the effects of the transformation and the downturn in other industries. However, they can hold their own against their international competitors if they successfully cope with the digital transformation, the current difficult political phase and the trade dispute (and the resulting weakened demand) and shine with innovative solutions.

Digitalisation and automation according to Industry 4.0 standards are among the special challenges the industry currently faces. Thanks to the increasing availability of cloud computing, predictive maintenance based on artificial intelligence and communicating, interconnected IoT systems will gradually find their way into the everyday lives of machine and plant manufacturers.

Digital transformation in mechanical engineering – actively promoted by specialists

Highly interconnected production, also called Industry 4.0, will enable the introduction of flexible manufacturing processes adapted to customer requirements as well as ever shorter test phases and faster commissioning procedures. In this context, the specialists themselves, i.e. external specialist consultants and experts trained in the new task fields, are the major drivers.

However, tomorrow’s specialists are not only required in engineering but also in marketing, sales and after-sales service. Furthermore, new forms of communication and organisational structures are needed to keep pace with the technical developments. This results in digital experts and qualified design and process engineers working hand in hand, which, in turn, connects new technologies and experience. This combination is vital for companies in the age of demographic change.
