Abstract

The Internet of Things (IoT), Industry 4.0, and the digitalization of business processes offer new opportunities and business models for the process industry, including education and training. The ProcessNet Symposion in Tutzing, Germany, held in April 2018 dealt with digitalization in the process industry. The outcome was described in 12 theses. Lean processes and integrated, software-assisted workflows are essential foundations, on which platform solutions and digital tools such as data analysis, networking systems, and artificial intelligence can be based. The digital twin of modular equipment, processes or entire plants improves planning processes and simplifies work flow in production. Interdisciplinary communication, the acquisition and evaluation of knowledge and lifelong learning will become more and more important.
