In the view of increasing costs, manufacturers are looking for new ways to cut costs. There are plenty of promising approaches. And the best thing is that with established digital solutions, you can unleash even more optimization potential.

“Digitization is not an end in itself”

Buzzwords like Industry 4.0 and Smart Factory are ever-present, regardless of industry and business size. CSB’s CEO Dr. Peter Schimitzek explains in the interview what is meant by process optimization, where digitization stands today in the food and beverage industry, and why data analyses à la Big Data will be increasingly important in future.
