Change is on the horizon in the global electronics industry with connectivity and the smart factory. Big data, factory automation and Industry 4.0 is forcing electronic manufacturing factories to harness connected technologies and software platforms to monitor, measure and optimize manufacturing expertise and productivity. Rising production labor costs, demand for better manufacturing reliability and efficiency and big data are driving the digitization of factory equipment with manufacturing systems that communicate among machines, with executive management and vendors in the supply chain while updating end user product in real-time.

Some industries are tougher to transform than others and those with physical limitations like manufacturing can prove challenging to digitize.
