The “4.0 Industry” concept, also called the 4th industrial revolution, was originated in a German government high-tech strategic plan to promote industry’s informatization.
In the environment of factories, sensors, computers, production cells and planning systems trade information with each other, thus making production, cost, contingency and safety decisions through Artificial Intelligence algorithms. From here onwards, a new productivity reality can be accessed: everything is connected so that the best production, cost and safety decisions are taken in real time.
“4.0 Industry” will transform the whole chain of values and will also allow the development of innovative products and services. But, for solutions to be in fact implemented new standards that support machine interoperability will have to be defined, and there’s already people working on that.
Enterprises will have to bet on innovation, human resources qualification for new technologies and processes that can be capitalized so that the necessary changes can be implemented.
“4.0 Industry” is already a reality, and it is changing the way we lead with production.
The Impact and Diagnostic Model 4.0 (IDM 4.0) is the first step to enter the 4th industrial revolution, and it’s designed so that it can have a vision of the different aspects and categories that will influence the 4th industrial revolution.
Through this diagnostics model, enterprises will be able to identify prioritary improvement opportunities on the way so that they can become a “4,0 Industry” enterprise.
