Smart Industry is the acceleration of digitalisation of our industry. It should lead to higher productivity, shorter delivery time, smaller series or n=1 for the price of mass production and ultimately an increase of remanufacturing or local production of goods. Zero-defect, zero-programming, zero-surprise (in maintenance), 100% digital twinning  and 100% digital connected supply chains are typical technological goals. Smart products and servitization are examples of business goals. But most important for all involved from business and society the challenge the every job in industry will be changed within 10 to 20 years and implicit need to (re-)train or continuously train everyone’s digital skills.
