Innovation in the field of industrial digital technologies (IDTs), the physical assets of Industry 4.0, continues apace. Other chapters in this handbook describe many examples of the diverse spectrum of IDTs on offer and in practice. The potential benefits of IDTs in enhancing productivity and competitiveness in the manufacturing value chain are much promoted by vendors, but to a lesser extent by academics and researchers, and even less so by suppliers, manufacturers, and customers. This chapter considers the reasons why adoption of IDTs has been slow in many industrialised countries, including the UK, and sets out a business-led approach to maximising productivity and competitiveness in the manufacturing value chain.
