“Industry 4.0” gains momentum – also in China!
Every Chinese manufacturer feels the heat of increased competition, rising labour cost and rising customer expectations towards manufacturing excellence. The 2nd China International Industrial Intelligence Summit, organized by Borscon, was held in Shanghai in June 2015, to fully focus on “Industry 4.0”.
To further increase productivity, efficiency and quality, “Industry 4.0” is being looked at in China as the new innovative approach to achieve these goals, by merging markets and production shop floors even closer via the Internet and to achieve decentralization, making sure that the right information is at the right place at the right time.

MPDV contributed to the summit as a key note speakers amongst other industry brand names such as General Electric (GE), SAP and Siemens. The message of MPDV was simple and clear: “For manufacturers, Industry 4.0 can only work with MES 4.0!”
MPDV Shanghai General Manager Sascha Graef greeted the audience and introduced the successful MPDV Group worldwide, with focus on their Asia operations on the basis of MPDV Asia Pte Ltd in Singapore and MPDV Software & Technology Services (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. in China.
Thereafter, Mingfeng Li, Asia Business Development Manager from MPDV Germany headquarters continued in his native Chinese language to introduce MPDV’s comprehensive MES solution portfolio specifically dedicated for “Industry 4.0 with MES 4.0”. A special focus was put on MPDV’s developments for mobile data collection solutions on tablet basis, and how a decentralized information management can be achieved through meaningful integration of the right information with the right IT infrastructure.
The Q&A session at the end of the presentation revealed a significant interest in the Chinese audience for MES as being the backbone for Industry 4.0.
Exited discussions between the audience and the MPDV speakers immediately evolved, some of them leading to further follow-up consultations by MPDV at the Chinese customers premises in the days after.
For MPDV, the positive “Industry 4.0“ awareness of the Chinese audience was a clear indicator for going into the right strategic direction by driving “Industry 4.0 with MES 4.0” in China and Asia further.
