The Business Investment Attraction Office of the Commonwealth of the Òdena Basin is committed to the application of industry 4.0 in the territory. This new concept of intelligent industry is born as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, in view of the new paradigms of digitization and cooperative coordination of the different productive units of the economy.
Industry 4.0 intends to promote smart factories, industries characterized by the interconnection of digitalized production machines and systems, which contribute to the flexibility and personalization of production processes. With the integration of data processing technologies, smart software and sensors, the factories can control, design and produce intelligently and provide a significant added value to their production chain.
Industry 4.0, an opportunity for the region
One of the lines of action of the Business Investment Attraction Office of the Intermunicipal Commonwealth of the Òdena Basin for 2018 is the commitment for the industry 4.0 in the territory. From the Occupation Area of the Commonwealth and the Business Investment Attraction Office want to work with companies in the territory to promote a series of lines of action that lead to this new paradigm of the means of production.
Àngels Chacón, General Director of Industry of the Generalitat de Catalunya, during the II Anoia Business Forum organized by the Anoia Business Union, emphasized that “the Anoia industrial sector stands at 26%, while at the rest of Catalonia is around 20%”, and that “one of the six axes that make up the National Agreement for Industry that was presented last year has the priority of fostering training, but also the industry 4.0 that has come to stay”. This is a reality that in the region will require “new talents” and, therefore, “lots of trainings”.
