Industry 4.0 – the next big step
It is difficult to set a fixed date when industry 4.0 was initiated. In recent decades, the fourth industrial revolution has gradually developed. Our digital landscape has led to a new standard in how we live our lives. With the help of mobile devices, strong network connectivity and other innovations, we can access services and data wherever we are.
Of course, the industry has not missed this. With the help of technological advances in the form of IoT (the Internet of Things), we can today streamline and control our industrial production more precisely than ever. Industry 4.0’s greatest strength is the comprehensive, interconnected and holistic view of manufacturing. For the first time, we can connect the physical with the digital. You get to talk through these machines.
What does this mean concretely? We can, for example, take part in measured values from machines wherever we are. It is early to see the beginning of any errors, where these can be prevented from an early stage. In this way, “unforeseen” machine stops can be prevented long before they have taken place – which saves a lot of money and effort.
For the first time, productivity will also be measurable in a concrete way. This makes it possible for the entire business to understand the whole. Wherever you are, you can follow the production flow and feel confident that things are working as they should.
