Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 is the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. It is also called “smart factory”. It includes cyber-physical systems, cloud computing and the internet of things.

The importance of big data doesn’t revolve around how much data you have, but what you do with it. You can take data from any source and analyse it to find answers that enable cost reductions, time reductions, new product development, reduced downtime, optimized lowering risk offerings and smarter decision making. When you combine big data with high-powered analytics, you can accomplish business-related tasks such as:

  • Determining root causes of failures, issues and defects in near-real time.
  • Re-calculating entire risk portfolios in minutes.
  • Detecting fraudulent behaviour before that affects your organization

The levels of the Industry 4.0

The fluid power businesses need a mental leap in terms of Industry 4.0. The industry is stagnated in old process. System operators need to step up and use these modern cost effective technologies that are already available in the market.

The next level of automation to be considered is the cyber-level, then the cognition-level and finally the configuration-level. The latter uses attributes such as: self-configuring for resilience, self-adjust for variation and self-optimise for disturbance
