Industry 4.0

Led by Professor Dimitrios Georgakopoulos, the Industry 4.0 program is focused on the rapidly changing demands of customers.​

This program aims to improve the productivity, safety, product quality and global competitiveness of Australian factories, their supply chains and production innovation.

We will work with Australian manufacturers in top producing export sectors, such as food, high tech and defence, as well as State and Federal governments and the Internet of Things Alliance Australia (IoTAA) in the fields of:

  • data science
  • process automation and improvement
  • human-machine interaction
  • electronics
  • control systems
  • computer science​.

We will work together with the industry to establish a “smart factory” forum that will:​

  • help define and maintain standard, open, industry-specific interfaces for developing and using industrial internet solutions
  • support developing, testing and offering new industrial internet solutions with less effort and cost
  • allow the industry to share industrial internet experiences and lessons learned.​

​Projects in this program will aim to substantially increase engagement with Australian manufacturers in the development and delivery of industrial internet solutions, and will ultimately impact productivity, safety, product quality and manufacturing agility.​
