The Copenhagen School of Entrepreneurship
Economic stagnation, increased industrial outsourcing, and a decrease in productivity have negatively impacted Denmark's industrial sector. The goal of this project was to work with the Copenhagen School of Entrepreneurship to identify attributes of companies capable of implementing Industry 4.0 (I40) technologies a means of increasing industrial productivity through the use of data management and automation. From interviews with I40 company representatives, we discovered the obstacles impeding I40 implementation are primarily due to inexperience with and uncertainty regarding these technologies. Using these findings and supplemental research, we developed a readiness assessment tool to assist companies in implementing I40 and a list of recommendations to encourage I40 usage in Denmark.
