Industry 4.0: a new challenge for Brazilian industry
The use of digital technologies in Brazilian industry is not widespread. Of all industries, 58% of companies are aware of the importance of these technologies for industrial competitiveness and less than half are actually using them. The focus has been on improving the production process, increasing productivity. Albeit this is a positive focus, it is limited, as it leaves opportunities open in the supply chain development stage and in the exploration of new business models.
