“Industry 4.0: Roadmap Development for Kazakhstan Enterprises” research project
The young research team of Nazarbayev University is in the active phase of work on a new project, dedicated to the development of Industry 4.0 in enterprises of Kazakhstan.
This project includes a thorough analysis of drivers, barriers and other factors that influence the growth of firms in Kazakhstan and entails industry-wide collaboration with company representatives. As an output, the project will produce a complex assessment model of readiness to Industry 4.0 for Kazakhstan enterprises and recommendations for its improvement as a part of company-specific roadmap to facilitate the industrial development of Kazakhstan.
The team has already received support from several enterprises in Kazakhstan and is looking for new companies that will be ready to support this project.
Plans of the research team for the future is to organize seminars and workshops for small- and medium-sized enterprises, where they can share insights from their fields of activity and learn more about the development of Industry 4.0 in Kazakhstan.
The team also actively maintains a research blog, where they write about interesting facts and features of Industry 4.0, its technologies and applications in production, and other interesting topics related to the development of enterprises.
