About Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 is built on the continuity of data across machines, development, and production, promising an incredibly simple and seamless business process. Powered by nearly real-time information, a smart manufacturer can better predict potential challenges, troubleshoot technical issues, and design a more dynamic manufacturing process. Industry 4.0 employs emerging digital technologies such as automation, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, or robotics to meet and exceed the demands of manufacturing.
