Boost NL - Introducing Smart Industry

Donna Fitzsimmons

Ton van den Boogaard from the Nonlinear Solid Mechanics chair participated in a TV program on Smart Industry, also known as Industry 4.0. (In Dutch)

Smart products, smart factories and smart business models rely heavily on models to simulate and optimize products and processes. Models are also used within process control to achieve zero-defect manufacturing. These models are based on physical understanding and algorithms that were developed by scientific computing groups. Hence, TCSC plays a key role in the 4th Industrial Revolution.
