Industry 4.0 in the Czech Republic
The implementation of the Industry 4.0 concept is going through various phases in not only the Czech Republic but other industrially developed countries as well. Unfortunately, some of the basic attributes of Industry 4.0 have been largely neglected in recent years due to various media abbreviations and simplifications, and the concept of Industry 4.0 has often been degraded to the robotization and digitization of anything. Fortunately, the phenomenon of Industry 4.0 has recently been directly linked to the process of digital transformation of companies, and companies that have already begun their digital transformations are rediscovering the breadth of the Industry 4.0 concept. The presentation points out the increasingly widening gap between companies that are strengthening their digital maturity and those that are postponing their digital transformation.
