In addition to the factory, the products manufactured in a factory will also become more intelligent in the future. Intelligent products are not standardized as before; rather, they adapt to people (i.e., for users of the product). They are therefore individual for each user. This individual dynamic adaptation to people creates real added value for users, which is what makes the product attractive and therefore intelligent.
How do products become intelligent? Here, too, data plays an important role. Data on the use of a product is collected, analyzed and used to create added value. This data, coupled with user-centricity and adaptability to specific circumstances, provides the basis for new digital business models for precisely intelligent products.
