The ROI of the smart industry

The ROI of the smart industry

Now that the Intelligent Factory model is based on the integration of technologies
production (Operational Technologies, OT) and modern digital technologies (Information Technologies, IT) is known to most people. As well as the advantage of adopting innovative technologies that make the company’s processes leaner and more efficient.
However, understanding what the return on investment (ROI) actually is to introducing enabling technologies in the factory is a bit more complex.
To help entrepreneurs here is the White Paper “ROI 4.0. A ROI model for the evaluation of the creation of value in Industry 4.0 “, realized by the University of Florence, University of
Pisa, Università Sant’Anna Superiore Sant’Anna of Pisa in collaboration with the Industrial Software Group of ANIE Automazione.
The model presented, called “ROI EVOLUTO”, was specifically designed to be applicable in the context of SMEs, where analytical data and benchmarks are often lacking on which to base
estimates of the benefits achievable with the adoption of these technologies. The White Paper, after registration, can be downloaded by clicking here.
