Although the principal activity of industry is centred on the production of goods, commercial and administrative activities are also important. A research and development component is also essential to the perpetuation of industrial activities.

An industry in 4.0 mode

Industry 4.0 is a concept that involves a fourth industrial revolution and hence new production methods. Applied to a production line, this concept refers to an interconnected infrastructure linking machines, production methods and products. This connectivity makes it possible to create intelligence in a production system, resulting in greater adaptability in production and a better allocation of resources. The aim is to have a smart production line, customised to meet the client's requirements.

To succeed in this digital and technological transformation of its activities, industry will have to rise to a number of challenges such as the connectivity of software and equipment, the standardisation of norms and processes in order to facilitate the exchange of data, the reorganisation of working methods and processes, the management of cyber-security in order to protect sensitive information and know-how, and the development of new skills necessary for operating and managing the new chains of production.

To start transforming industry, there has to be a reconsideration of the organisation, and innovation. As in any revolution, the stakes are high, and it is necessary to find a winning business model and accompany the sector's professionals in the development of their skills.  

The challenges facing industrial players are cross-functional by nature, and are often similar to those in other sectors. 

Our programmes leading to a diploma, our certifying paths and our recommended training courses make it possible to structure a professional development plan in relation to these challenges. As these are mainly cross-functional challenges, the appropriate training courses are to be found in the training fields
« Entrepreneurship & Business Management », « Internal Corporate Organisation » and
« Information Technologies (IT) ». To allow more freedom of progression in your development plan, individual training courses may be selected from the recommendations and topics. This will enable you to choose more personalised training courses so that you can further develop certain key skills necessary for your professional activity.
