We unite the BFH research institutes involved at different stages of the forestry and wood industry value chain. Our experts combine the material, chemical and energetic utilisation of wood as a resource. Digital connectivity is the overarching element that links the entire chain.
Digital transformation and ‘Industry 4.0’
From planning to product – the digital data chain
Our goal is to strengthen companies by making use of digital opportunities. We create a continuous information chain between the different planning and production processes involved in digital fabrication, e.g. using Building Information Modeling (BIM):
Solutions for integrated digital process control
Data transfer interface optimisation
Complete applications with digitally controlled production units
Forest & Wood 4.0 initiative – entering the digital future together
What do digital transformation and ‘Industry 4.0’ mean for the forestry and wood industry? Working together with associations, companies, experts and digital natives, we support companies to make a full digital transformation through the Forest & Wood 4.0 initiative.
