What does an Industry 4.0 manufacturing system or process include?
There isn’t an Industry 4.0 supermarket where you can buy a ready-made solution. Industry 4.0 sits between both the pull of business and the push of technology. There are traditional technologies such as control systems, SCADA, MES, PLM and ERP, and there are new technologies such as Big Data, Augmented Realty, cloud computing, 3D virtualisation and advanced robotics. These technologies add value to business by making what they do today more efficient.
