Challenges and Opportunities of Industry 4.0 – Spanish Experience

Kateryna Bondar
Abstract— This article presents the study of the degree of implementation of the technologies of Industry 4.0 in Spain. We have seen that organizations in general are becoming aware of Industry 4.0 and have assumed that this revolution can help them to be more competitive, being key to their survival. However, although consciousness exists, it has not translated into the strategic plans of organizations. Although the Industry 4.0 measures are beginning to be implemented in Spain, it is still early to see the results and conclude if the model can be exported to other countries. Many industrial sectors, such as the automotive industry or the food industry, have targeted the new trend, but it remains to be seen whether this translates into a real increase in competitiveness.

Index Terms— Industry 4.0, competitiveness, organizational strategy.
