ebp describes its goals and values on jobable.com.
The term “Industry 4.0” stands for the fourth industrial revolution. Best understood as a new level of organization and control over the entire value chain of the life cycle of products, it is geared towards increasingly individualized customer requirements. This cycle begins at the product ideas and development and extends through to planning and manufacturing, all the way to the delivery to the end-customer, and concludes with recycling, encompassing all resultant services. The basis for this fourth industrial revolution is the availability of all relevant information in real time by connecting all relevant instances involved in the value chain. The connection of people, things and systems creates dynamic, self-organizing, real-time optimized, value added connections within and across companies. These can be optimized according to different criteria such as cost, availability and consumption of resources.
