Hyperconnected Factories pathway

The first levels of the HyperconnectedFactories pathway displays similar levels as the Autonomous & Smart Factories pathway:  Multi-purpose digital tools are progressively implemented and complemented by dedicated tools that are operating in silos within the company. 

Communication with other companies is primarily done by e-mails and attachments until reaching Level 4, where dedicated IT connections (such as private industrial networks) are established among a selection of long-term value chain partners.     

Level 5 is a level where a dynamic IT connection can be established with new business partners or suppliers.

Deliverable 4.7 reflects a snapshot at the end of December 2019 of the progress and outlook of the development of the pathways.
