 Industry 4.0 Training

Industry 4.0 is sometimes explained as the fusion of digitalization with traditional industrial processes. This results in intelligent value chains and product lifecycles that start with development, go through manufacturing, assembly, product delivery and maintenance, and end with recycling.

The 4.0 represents the fourth revolution that has taken place in manufacturing. The first industrial revolution featured mechanization through water and steam power. The second industrial revolution was the beginning of mass production and assembly lines using electricity. This was followed up by Industry 3.0, characterized by the adoption of computers and automation.

The term Industry 4.0 was coined at Hannover Messe 2011 and was included as an important component into the German government’s high-tech strategy. Two years later, the Industry 4.0 Platform set up by the Bitkom digital association, the German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association (ZVEI) and the German Engineering Federation (VDMA) took up its work. The Industry 4.0 Platform is the central network for national and international activities concerning digital transformation in Germany.

In recent years, Industry 4.0 has come to be associated with the Internet of Things (IoT). Industry 4.0 refers to the next step in industrial technology, with robotics, computers and equipment becoming connected to the Internet of Things, and enhanced by machine learning algorithms.

This has evolved because advances in sensor technology and connectivity modules have allowed more equipment to be measured, monitored and tracked between sites, and orchestrated from a central, remote location.

Industry 4.0 emphasizes a concept known as “predictive maintenance/analytics.” This is all about predicting when potential problems are going to arise before they actually happen. Without IoT, preventative maintenance is an inefficient manual task. With IoT systems in place, preventive maintenance is much more automated and streamlined. Systems can sense when problems are arising or machinery needs to be fixed, and can empower you to solve potential issues before they become bigger problems.

Asset tracking and optimization via IoT influenced automation and robotics also helps manufacturers to become more efficient with assets at each stage of the supply chain. It allows manufacturers to keep better track on inventory, quality and optimization opportunities relating to logistics. Additionally, standard asset management tasks such as asset transfers, disposals, reclassifications, and adjustments can be streamlined and managed centrally and in real time.

Other benefits from IoT-infused Industry 4.0, include:

  • Richer and more timely analytics
  • Digitizing and making sense of information
  • Improving customer satisfaction and customer experience
  • Improving product quality or keeping product quality intact
  • Boost efficiency and profitability across the entire organization
  • Real-time insights that lead to better, faster decisions
  • Providing all team members with up-to-date, relevant views of production and business processes

In Industry 4.0, automation and intercommunication are the basis for the optimization of design and production processes, which allows manufacturing of highly customized, flexible and efficient products. It affects the entire life cycle of a product, ensuring its vertical and horizontal integration.

In a Smart Factory, production control is absolute. The digital integration of information provides real-time access to the data, which will be chosen for each line, interest or user profile so that they are relevant to the business.
