Industry 4.0 changes processes, procedures and products. Based on a detailed data acquisition and analysis, a digitally networked production with self-organizing and self-controlling processes is created - starting at the supplier and continuing through the manufacturing process to delivery.
The basis is a complete, comprehensive data acquisition by means of sensors. Until some time ago, the almost unbelievable amount of data collected could often only be processed by large companies due to its complexity and the high processing costs involved. Thanks to the cost-effective availability of the cloud, this mass data is now available to any organization for further processing.
