DIN: Setting tomorrow's standards today

Industry 4.0, the "fourth industrial revolution", essentially refers to the merging of virtual worlds with real production. This means that areas such as mechanical engineering, logistics and IT must work together smoothly - across the globe. How can we efficiently pave the road to industry 4.0? The fact is: This is not possible without standards. DIN has taken great steps for moving towards Industry 4.0, making it easier for German companies to stay ahead in the process.
