We already developped a bit how to deal with a successful implementation of Industry 4.0 solutions and the Human Factor.
This is now for your the opportunity to go further by downloading our latest whitepaper called: "How to deal with Industry 4.0 and the Human Factor?"
These days, Industry4.0 is a concept that has gained high levels of recognition within both industrial and political environments. Much of the vision for Industry 4.0 has been provided by Acatech – the German Academy of Science and Engineering – which views the concept as being of vital importance for securing the long-term future of the country’s manufacturing base. Significant funding and support activities have been made available through national programs designed to establish Germany as the primary market for cyber-physical systems and smart services by 2020.
According to national development agency Germany Trade and Invest (GTAI), Industry 4.0 will lead to the emergence of what it describes as ‘smart industry’ where people, devices, objects, and systems combine to form dynamic, self-organizing networks of production. This represents a paradigm shift from ‘centralized’ to ‘decentralized’ production - made possible by technological advances which constitute a reversal of conventional production process logic. Simply put, this means that industrial production machinery no longer simply ‘processes’ the product, but that the product communicates with the machinery to self-determine the most efficient means of operation. Highly individualized, low-volume, real-time production becomes the norm in what GTAI predicts will be a rapidly changing industrial landscape.
So, where is the Human Factor place on a successful implementation of Industry 4.0 solutions? It's the central point of the process. Get more now!
