Video PlayerClose DETROIT, Dec. 7 (Xinhua) -- U.S. experts on Friday gathered at an event in Plymouth, in the state of Michigan, to discuss the difficulties and strategies in implementing Industry 4.0 among U.S. automakers and suppliers. Industry 4.0, or the Fourth Industrial Revolution, centers on the use of technology to improve manufacturing processes, which allows a company to be more efficient, and save time and money. A perception that nothing is wrong with their manufacturing processes is among problems needed to be solved in promoting Industry 4.0, said U.S. experts on the sidelines of the event titled "Lean Manufacturing in the Era of Digital Transformation and IoT." "They don't see the benefits," said Ronny Chiang, president and co-founder of BEET Analytics, a technology start-up in Plymouth.

Hence, the government intervened and a white revolution came into being, transforming the milk industry forever. Amul was born, and it became the most successful brand of milk-based products in India. Two entrepreneurs in Bengaluru are nurturing the same dream for the fragmented $35-billion meat industry in India. They are looking to create a brand in the unbranded meat market. "When you buy an Amul butter packet, you don't check what's inside because you trust the brand. Similarly, we want to create a trustworthy meat brand in India," says Vivek Gupta, co-founder of Licious, India's first online meat market.With changing consumer … [Read more...] about If Amul’s for butter, will Licious be for meat?
