Industry 4.0 - Smart Manufacturing & Smarter Business

What is Industry 4.0? 

Industry 4.0 is the 4th major advancement in the manufacturing progress.  The first was using water and steam to power the mechanical process in manufacturing.  We call this The Industrial Revolution - Mid to late 1800's.  The second was Mass Production, think of Henry Ford's introduction of the assembly line circa 1913.  The third was the introduction of the computer, which led to automation - 1970's & 1980's.  Now, we find ourselves amidst a new age of manufacturing, "smart manufacturing" (Smart Manufacturing - Next Post)

Industry 4.0, by some, is defined as the convergence and application of 9 digital industrial technologies. They tend to include; Autonomous or Advanced Robotics, System Integration, Big Data, Augmented Reality, Additive manufacturing, Cloud Computing, Internet of Things (IoT), Simulation and Cybersecurity to round them out.  See below
