Canadian manufacturers have been slow to embrace Industry 4.0. For example, only 6% of respondents to PLANT’s 2017 Outlook survey are engaged with the Industrial Internet of Things. And a BDC survey shows only 3% of small and medium manufacturers have fully digitized their production.

But the BDC study shows 40% have implemented 4.0 projects, and  36% are part way through digitizing production while 17% intend to do so. On the other hand, 42% have done nothing, and most investments in 4.0 over the past two years were just $100,000 or less.

BDC’s survey shows higher investment increases the benefits.

So how is your digitalization effort progressing?

On behalf of Siemens, Longitude Research has created a 15-minute benchmarking survey to explore progress among discrete and process manufacturing companies in the US.

Siemens Canada offers use of this tool to assess key areas such as data, networking of production equipment and products, adaptability of capacity and processes, integration, security and people.
