In 2019, “InTechCentras“ together with the „Lithuanian Innovation Center“ prepared a RoadMap for the digitization of Lithuanian industry for 2019–2030. This document is the main result of the project “Developing a RoadMap for the industrial digitization initiative in Lithuania” (SRSS / C2018 / 002) funded by the European Commission Support Service for Structural Reforms (PSRT) and corresponds to the tender submitted by PSRT specifications. This RoadMap project was developed as part of the RoadMap adopted by the Lithuanian National Industrial Platform “Industry 4.0”.
The Roadmap aims to assist in steering the Lithuanian manufacturing industry development towards global advancement. The Industry 4.0 movement started in Germany in 2011 is now the driving force behind the European industry transformation. It introduces digitisation as the next stage of mechanization, automation and robotization. With the advent of Smart Factories, Cyber-Physical Systems and everything interconnected with Internet of Things and Cloud-Based Technologies, Industry 4.0 seeks to make the manufacturing processes integrated across a multitude of levels within supply chains.
