Benchmarking study forecasts significant market changes in the large industrial plant manufacturing sector
21.05.2019 In the course of ongoing digitalization, the construction of large-scale plants is facing significant market changes, for which companies have to prepare intensively. This is the core result of a new, broad-based benchmark study by the VDMA Large Industrial Plant Manufacturers’ Group (AGAB) and PwC Capital Projects & Infrastructure.
According to a current survey the construction site stands to profit significantly from Industry 4.0. The obvious advantages will be in construction site management with the ensuing adherence to delivery dates and documentation of the actual status.
According to the results of this study, the plant manufacturing industry is aware that implementing Industry 4.0 will require a great deal of effort.
Modularisation and standardisation have been a hotly discussed topic in industrial plant manufacturing for quite some time. The underlying concern is a considerable savings potential.
In respect of lndustry 4.0, German EPCs are thus in a much better starting position than at the time of the last survey two years ago. Approximately 70 percent of respondents said that their company is already fit or well pre¬pared for the digitisation journey today.
With the support of the VDMA's Large Industrial Plant Manufacturers' Group the Dresden International University offers a European-wide unique postgraduate MBA-Program „International Commercial & Contract Management“ .
