About this talk

Industry 4.0 comes with an impressive collection of assets and capabilities. However, although the degree of applicability in Bioprocessing is high, the origin of these technological innovations is exogenous. This is not without implications and in this talk we are concerned with their identification and quantification. We commence with the onboarding of an exogenous technology problem. Industry 4.0 tools have been developed with different objectives in mind. Integrating them in Bioprocessing requires a critical a priori analysis of similarities and transferability.  We then move on to address a fundamental question: is this exogeneity positive or negative for Bioprocessing?  The answer is drawn from historical case studies, stemming from different industries. This naturally leads us to the concept of  the fallacy of division and the associated dangers of disruption. Finally, we go a step further and explore how the addition of 4.0 in Bioprocessing can alter the core business activities and what this implies for the insourcing vs outsourcing dilemma that both big and small corporations have to face.
