Industry 4.0 - intelligent network integration of devices from Zamak Mercator
The events of the last year strongly accelerated the digital transformation towards Industry 4.0 The implementation of various technologies and smart factory platforms, such as Industry 4.0, is currently attracting a lot of attention in the industrial environment and requires action towards greater integration and optimization of information (IT) systems. These systems are used in management, production and field devices.
What will the future of the industry look like?
The events of the last year strongly accelerated the digital transformation towards Industry 4.0
The implementation of various smart factory technologies and platforms, such as Industry 4.0, is currently attracting a lot of attention in the industrial environment and requires steps towards greater integration and optimization of information (IT) systems.
These systems are used in management, production and field devices.
The transformation towards Industry 4.0, according to the European Center for Advanced Manufacturing Support, includes 7 stages:
The first concerns technological advancement, including flexible production systems that facilitate quick adaptation to changes in the number or category of products.
The next step is to share information about the manufacturing process between people, machines and products.
The third phase is about embedding circular economy principles in order to make full use of raw materials and reduce emissions.
End-to-End Customer Focused Engineering is the fourth step towards Industry 4.0.
In the next fifth stage, it is crucial to focus on people , including by using individual differences to strengthen the organization, and building a meaningful work environment.
The sixth stage, i.e. smart manufacturing , assumes the use of integrated systems that react to changing conditions in real time. In this context, storing and sharing large data sets (big data) is of great importance.
And finally, the last step is an open factory that understands the needs of all participants in the value chain .
The unprecedented technological revolution in human history is called the fourth industrial revolution
With the Industry 4.0 revolution, it will rapidly move to the use of digitization technologies in fields such as engineering, physics and biology, thus creating entirely new possibilities. Processes all over the world occur both online and physically, interconnecting into a flexible system.
Industry 4.0 has an impact on the global economy, affects the implementation of a number of innovations in various fields, including quantum computing, gene sequencing, renewable energy sources and nanotechnology
The new industrial revolution has been applied in so many areas that it has affected many areas of human activity Rapid changes are taking place in the landscape of many companies, and these extend to the entire value chain Including R&D, manufacturing, logistics and customer service, and reduces transaction and delivery costs Probably significantly this will affect production, which will significantly change the production processes, and will also lead to the convergence of real and digital functions, thus creating the Internet of Things (IoT), or universal Internet. in production methods can be achieved through new forms of technology combining physical and online environments All aspects of the business from infrastructure, industrial production to healthcare will be subject to an IoTN-driven control processFor example, Industry 4.0 could significantly reduce the cost of Moreover, an organization can gain a significant advantage with IR 4.0, as this concept has the ability to analyze data in real timeOrganizations can also become more agile, autonomously monitor activities, and increase production and the level of competitiveness.
So should entrepreneurs do something about this and think about investing in the future now?
It seems that now is the time for your move Industry 4.0 has been with us for some time, we may even be tempted to give it the term Industry 4.5.
All this so that we can make accurate, better and faster decisions and implement them, and thus be more competitive on the market and win in the race for the client.
So, do we know the answer to what the future of our industry will look like? .
