Industry 4.0 and Smart factories
Industry 4.0 technologies like the Internet of Things, machine learning and artificial intelligence, for example, mean that manufacturers can now make legacy equipment ‘smart’.
In fact, Industry 4.0 is expected to:
- Connect machine-to-machine communication using the Internet of Things.
- Decentralise decision-making by the cyber-physical system in an autonomous manner.
- Introduce a mechanism to predict failures and issue alerts in real-time.
- Create enriched digital twins populated with sensor data from the plant or field.
Is your organisation ready?
Nine out of ten manufacturing executives believe that ‘Smart Factory’ digital technology, including AI, will help their business, according to the Manufacturer. But only 12 percent of firms are actually using them.
