Introducing the Technologies, Products, and Solutions for Smart Factory

Motoyuki Oishi

Producer of FACTORY 2016
Chief editor, Nikkei Electronics

The Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data are expected to drive significant evolution in the manufacturing industry . By fusing such leading edge ITs and FA technologies, Smart Factory will become reality.

Those kind of project are already well under way over the world. For example Industry 4.0 in Germany. General Electric and many companies formed Industrial Internet Consortium.

To support this trend, Nikkei BP began holding forum-based event that named FACTORY 20xx in 2014, and we are proud to announce an expanded program this year that will combine a forum and an exhibition as FACTORY 2016.

A diverse range of technologies will be needed to create the Smart Factory: information, communications, embedded systems, devices, sensors, and more. The new exhibition provides visitors with a chance to see the entire spectrum at once. Held simultaneously with the forum, positioned at the cutting edge of the evolving manufacturing industry, this is the place for key people to get the information they need.
