Make Industry 4.0 your everyday reality

With Industry 4.0 solutions and technology from SAP, you can bring data-driven processes and operational flexibility to the entire business. 

Apply four winning strategic initiatives from SAP by putting intelligence into products, factories and logistics, assets, and people.

  • Intelligent products can be built and configured to meet customers' unique needs and use sensors to report on their operational health.
  • Intelligent factories use advanced technologies to run autonomously and deliver mass produced or individualised products at scale.
  • Intelligent assets link all operational processes and enable predictive maintenance of equipment.
  • Empowered people have the tools and information they need to do their best work.

SAP provides key solutions for Industry 4.0

SAP's supply chain management portfolio brings all the Industry 4.0 capabilities together across your ecosystem. Combine the power of digital manufacturing in factories and plants with end-to-end business process execution across the supply chain.

Develop connected, self-aware products that are capable of sharing information about their health, location, usage level, storage conditions, and more.

The data these smart products share can help you improve everything from product quality and customer service to logistics and R&D. They can also anticipate service needs, receive remote upgrades, and open the door to new, service-based business models.
