The concept of Industry 4.0 can be defined as the integration of digital technologies into means of production, as well as products. These are the internet, wireless sensors, artificial intelligence, big data, etc. Thus, the application of these technologies to the existing automation of the existing means of production makes it possible to lead to a new type of factories called “smart factories”, that is to say intelligent factories, or connected. This concept has arisen in Germany since 2011 where it was presented for the first time, and repeated on a loop from around the world …

The excitement that there is around is explained by the fact that, just like the three great industrial revolutions known to mankind: the first in the 1760s which saw the appearance of the mechanization of production thanks to the steam engine whose main source was coal, the second which led to the production of mass through standardization under the impetus of electricity and petroleum in 1870, then the recent one in the middle of the 20th century with automated production thanks to computer technologies and electronics, we are in a new era of industry .

And that will undoubtedly generate new business models and work processes. It is because we are still in the early days that we are talking about a concept, otherwise it is a real industrial revolution that is underway.

The question that burns the lips then is to know what pushes a press group like INDUSTRIE DU MAROC to organize an event around Industry 4.0.

Hicham RAHIOUI : I will answer you quite simply that it is our very role of press which pushes us to this type of action, because it is not only the «Global Industry 4.0 Conference» to our credit. Since as you know, the mission assigned to the press is to provide information. So by already bringing this information on the progress to our target community, we are fully assuming our role. Furthermore, MOROCCO INDUSTRY is a specialized press, the first in Morocco, moreover, in industry, investment and innovation. This shows very clearly that in all respects we are challenged and we are doing «Global Industry 4.0 Conference» to sensitize the entire Moroccan industrial community, which nevertheless represents one million jobs and almost 23% of GDP, of this important change which is underway and which is completely disrupting the value creation chains. You know, today with this industry 4.0, the industrial company is able to react more quickly to market changes, increase its operational efficiency and increasingly personalize the product. All this while significantly reducing production costs while maintaining practically the same levels of earnings. Professionals place these margins in the order of 25 to 30%.

You will then have understood that the manufacturers who will have quickly taken the train will derive a huge profit, in terms of competitiveness and market share. On the other hand, those who will have remained on the platform, will simply bite their fingers. And rightly so «Global Industry 4.0 Conference» constitutes an alert to our industrial community so that Industry 4.0 is not considered as a distant concept, but rather that it realizes that it is a current reality in which it must engage without delay. In short, the «Global Industry 4.0 Conference» because INDUSTRIE DU MAROC, in addition to fulfilling its role of press, remains convinced that this new industrial revolution is a great opportunity for our country which is now embarking on a major industrial shift aimed at reducing its imports by stimulating local production, and increase its exports. We said it yesterday, we say it again today, Industry 4.0 is a boon for “Made In Morocco”.

Industries.ma: You are in the second edition. Having said that, what conclusions did you draw from the first one?
