KUKA’s digital roadmap focuses on the development of digital capabilities in four areas: the standardization of processes, the improvement of operational procedures, the development of internal and external digital collaboration methods, and the development of software based services to enhance our process efficiency. These measures will satisfy both the fundamental need for digital support and KUKA’s strategic goals such as Industrie 4.0.
