New procedures, technologies and practices are being introduced on almost a daily basis, which makes the manufacturing industry among the most interesting and challenging. When computers were introduced in Industry 3.0, it was disruptive thanks to the addition of an entirely new technology. Now, and into the future as Industry 4.0 unfolds, computers will continue to connect and communicate with one another. This results in making decisions without human involvement.
Industry 4.0 is expanding the possibilities of digital transformation and is seeing an increase of importance to the organization. It combines and connects digital and physical technologies, artificial intelligence, as well as the Internet of Things (IoT). Also, within 4.0, one cannot forget about additive manufacturing, robotics, cloud computing, and big data. Smart and automated technologies drive for more flexible, responsive, and interconnected enterprises capable of making more informed decisions, known as smart factories and/or manufacturing.
Within the manufacturing industry, modern facilities will continue to evolve with additional technology to enable global competitiveness. As facilities implement Industry 4.0, the amount of technology reliant on IT infrastructure will increase.
