Guest: Professor Johan Stahre, Chalmers University of Technology.

Digitalization tells “how you should use a new technology in order to be more productive, safer, and more creative”.

In this episode, Professor Johan Stahre tells us what digitalization is, and how it is leveraging manufacturing companies’ capabilities to be more productive and more innovative. Johan also tells what the division of production systems at Chalmers is doing in order to build the engineering competences needed for the fourth industrial revolution. Johan also explained what digitalized factories are capable to do. We zoomed in on the 5G network as standard to convey key information. The talk concluded with a mention on the role of the SMEs in the fourth industrial revolution.
