Rexroth Consulting

It’s one thing to envision the factory of the future; it’s quite another to map out how you’ll get there. While implementing i4.0 technology may seem like a daunting challenge, Rexroth’s step-by-step approach, proven time and again in our own factories, ensures your organization has the i4.0 readiness, knowledge, and practical know-how to make Industry 4.0 a reality.

If you’re taking the first step in your i4.0 journey, Kickstarter and Digital Jumpstart are two proven templates to get you started—one designed for executive leadership and plant managers (Kickstarter), and the other for IT professionals (Digital Jumpstart).

Kickstarter Program for Plant Managers & Executive Leadership

Kickstarter is a four-day workshop designed to help plant managers and organization leaders set and develop their vision, goals and high-level i4.0 road map. A platform-agnostic workshop led by an instructional team of Bosch engineers, the program addresses i4.0 implementation from both a strategic and operational perspective, to ensure vision and execution are aligned.

Certification Course Content Includes:

- Establish a clear vision of where you want to take your manufacturing operation

- Build a roadmap for realizing that vision

- Assign the team responsible for executing that roadmap

After completing Kickstarter, organizations will be well positioned to begin their i4.0 journey—determining what technology to adopt, establishing a timeline, and prioritizing next steps. They may elect to engage Bosch Rexroth further, under a consulting contract, or develop their program entirely in-house.
