An Industry 5.0 approach enables manufacturers in the process industry to take advantage of the benefits of digitization while avoiding the pitfalls. A people-centered digitization strategy draws on the insights and experiences of people working in the industry to create systems that are tailored to specific needs.
Algorithms can surface information and patterns that are difficult for humans to detect on their own. However, algorithms are not well-positioned to respond to changing conditions and unanticipated shocks. People are needed for these challenges. By combining the strengths of both people and machines, we can make organizations safer, smarter and more resilient.
