As part of MHI view's ongoing video program, this episode focuses on the Industrial Internet of Things and Industry 4.0, and was one of the most-viewed videos of 2017.

Industry 4.0 signals the arrival of IT on the shop floor, and stands to be as big a disruptor of the industry as the steam engine, linear assembly and automation were before it.  

This is episode four of our 2017 Annual Industry Report Update Series. Find the previous three episodes here.
