The overall goal of this project is to give Flemish food companies a boost in their Industry 4.0 (I4.0) transformation
by developing an innovative I4.0 transformation model with which they can improve their business strategy or develop new
business models. This model provides the management of companies with the necessary tools to develop such
innovative I4.0 strategy, analyze their current I4.0 maturity, and establish their I4.0 development path.
With these new insights, after completion of the PhD, the call for I4.0 guidance from a large group of Flemish food companies can be organized.
