Even though Industry 4.0 is making a lot of news with new opportunities and doors to new ventures. But two things which EY focused on their survey that what goals are needed for firms to adopt digitalization and how much capital need to be invested for Industry 4.0?
In the survey, the result shows that 59% is recorded for flexible reactions to changing requirement which have been considered the strong point and the next is adjusting to fluctuations with fast demand.
In the next survey, the firms have been divided in two groups, one is with 100 to 500 employees and the other one is with 500 and above employees. The time line is from July 2016 to August 2018,
In both cases, the opinion recorded shows that 54% totally agrees that investment in Industry 4.0 will increase up to 5 percent.
In my opinion, the development shows the rise and the demand of Industry 4.0 has been strongly covered and the employees are also accepting the changing and integrating it strongly. It is true that the change cannot be denied but the involvement from the employees in Germany shows a strong engagement and the complexity has been very well accepted.
