Industry 4.0

Commonly referred to as the fourth industrial revolution, Industry 4.0 is defined as the automation and data exchange within manufacturing and industrial technologies.

Smart manufacturing and smart factories rely on the building blocks of Industry 4.0, namely the internet of things and cloud computing, which allow machines, sensors and people to connect and communicate with each other in real time.

Big data brings opportunities for more human-machine interactions, leading to business intelligence and analytic capabilities powering instructions to the physical world through networks of intelligent devices. With this industrial connectivity, we see the supply chain talking to the production line, manufacturing becomes more versatile, production leaner, maintenance more efficient and running costs lower. Stay tuned to this hub for all posts and content relating to Industry 4.0.
