Dubbed as the 4th industrial revolution the introduction of automation and connected devices in the manufacturing industry has led to the creation of smart factories, communicating between each other through Internet of Things technology to streamline the manufacturing process.
Modern information and communication technologies like Cyber-Physical Systems, Big Data or Cloud Computing will help predict the possibility to increase productivity, quality and flexibility within the manufacturing industry and thus to understand advantages within the competition.
Smart factories, which will be at the heart of Industry 4.0, will take on board information and communication technology for an evolution in the supply chain and production line that brings a much higher level of both automation and digitisation. It means machines using self-optimisation, self-configuration and even artificial intelligence to complete complex tasks in order to deliver vastly superior cost efficiencies and better quality goods or services.
There are a number of ways current factories can make use of Industry 4.0 techniques, with some of the products below being well suited to help implement intelligent, data-driven systems that will allow you to reap the benefits of the new Internet of Things revolution.
