IT & OT alignment crucial in Industry 4.0
FrieslandCampina focuses – on its way to Industry 4.0 – on innovation in the entire dairy chain. Before innovations can be implemented (which are necessary for the digital transformation), the first requirement is that the factory environment remains safe and the production process must not be endangered. But:
- If the factory becomes one big computer, who will take charge? Operations or the IT department?
- How do you continue to utilize the talents on both sides without unnecessarily competing with each other?
In order to truly embrace Industry 4.0, two completely different - and traditionally completely separate worlds - suddenly have to start working together much better: The factory floor with operational technology (OT) on the one hand, with the IT department - often from the head office - on the other hand.
