Industry 4.0 or 1.0? – Quick poll

ER.J Postscript Cartoon600

At this year’s Future Tire Conference, 27-28 June in Cologne, industry leaders and decision-makers will discuss the way forward for automation and integration across the tire-manufacturing industry and its supply-chain.

But recently, at another conference, the tire industry was described as being closer to Industry 1.0 than Industry 4.0.

On a scale of 1.0-4.0, how would you rate the tire industry, where ‘1.0’ is early 20th century and ‘4.0’ is today’s new ideal of manufacturing close to a batch size one with minimal latent stock.
