It is evident that traditional industrial companies are about to change greatly very soon. The reality of the internet of things is here already. Digitalization, automation, robotization and servitization are all key to what actually gives a competitive edge to the traditional manufacturer but what is it exactly that needs to happen going forward?

The more refined the production process gets, the greater the need for specific skill-sets and competencies. The key differentiator will be human capital. This is the time when the key changes that the industry is going through will define our future. The assembly line worker is replaced by a highly qualified engineer with great digital skills
