Ten years after the launch of the Industrie 4.0 initiative, Professors Kagermann and Wahlster, two of the initiators, had already published an FAZ article at the end of March in which they claimed an all-round success. Now a top dialogue was to confirm this on June 16. And if one reads the FAZ of June 18 to it (and the comments under it not), then this succeeded. If one had tuned in, one saw something else. And the SME sector, the heart of the industry, did not even get a chance to speak.
