Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 – the Fourth Industrial Revolution, or the concept that the development of industry has entered a new phase, due to the increasing penetration of information technology, automation and biotechnological improvements.

Industry 1.0 – human labor is replaced by steam machines.

Industry 2.0 – humanity begins mass production using electricity.

Industry 3.0 – the first automation based on computer systems occurs.

Continuous automation of old manufacturing and industrial methods progresses along with the use of current smart technologies, large-scale machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, and the Internet of Things. The overall process is translating into major changes in the way the global manufacturing and supply chain network operates. Increased automation, better communication and self-monitoring, and the use of intelligent equipment that can assess and diagnose problems without the need for human interaction are all benefits of this integration.

In the manufacturing industry, Industry 4.0 solutions are based on maximum automation of all activities performed during the production process. Industry 4.0 technologies are advanced production management systems such as MES, WMS, EMS or ERP. Industry 4.0 requires less human labor, while the supervision of operations can be carried out regardless of the physical distance from the production hall.

Industrial Revolution 4.0 also means the possibility of full remote control of the production process from anywhere in the world. The Industrial Internet of Things makes it possible to introduce changes, generate reports and, on their basis, conduct analysis of the manufacturing process, as well as changes in the production itself on the fly.
