Bosch, a pioneer in connected industry, doubles its profits.
The household appliance company, Bosch, has increased its sales by 25% in recent years thanks to connected solutions. By 2012, Bosch was already applying this type of solutions, in fact, it was one of the first companies to implement IoT in its manufacturing process.
Following Bosch's example, other industries, such as the automotive industry, have significantly increased their investment in connected devices. Artificial Intelligence and predictive maintenance are the two areas in which most investments are made because they help boost the quality of the manufacturing process.
Germany is a great industrial power in Europe; this is evident because over a half of its companies are connected (considering the companies that employ +100 workers). The implementation of Industry 4.0 is taking place very rapidly across all sectors. Soon, it will be a rare thing to see companies that have not undergone the process of digitalization.
Bosch, a connected company that leads by example, has all the possible digital packages for maximum efficiency: maintenance, monitoring and logistics software, robotic systems for manufacturing and transport, machine reconditioning and systems for machine operators.
At the IoT Digital Innovation Hub we strive to provide professionals with the knowledge and tools they need to successfully perform Industry 4.0 digitalization processes. This is why we offer our students doing the Master’s Degree in Technologies Applied to Industry 4.0., the opportunity to do an internship at one of the partner companies of the University of Salamanca.
