Why a book on 4.0 sight?

It's not easy being a manufacturer in today's world. Consumer tastes are changing, product lifecycles are getting shorter and there are now more technologies than you can shake a stick at. Oh, and if you don't digitalise immediately, you'll be left dead in the water. No wonder, then, that so many businesses are scrabbling to use industrial digital technologies such as additive manufacturing, artificial intelligence, remote monitoring and cloud analytics.
