Industry 4.0, the Dawn of a new wave of Technology


Considered as a part of the 4th industrial revolution, Industry 4.0 is a trend towards automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies and processes which include Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Internet of Things (IoT), Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT), Cloud Computing, Cognitive Computing, and Artificial Intelligence. 


Technological Advancement has come a long way, the first Industrial Revolution began around the 18th century, through the use of steam power. By the time third Industrial Revolution, which began around the 20th century there has been drastic transformation to partial automation using memory programmable controls and computers. As the industry 4.0 unfolds remarkable changes have occurred in the field of technology. In the era of Industry 4.0 computers are connected and communicate with one another to make decisions without human involvement. It has built a foundation where machines are able to manage themselves and the production process functions independently without the intervening of manpower.

Germany a nation with an unmatched reputation in manufacturing has played the pioneering role in revolutionizing technology by bringing Industrial Revolution 4.0. The name was first proposed in Hanover Fair in 2011 and was soon followed by a report in 2013, which eventually lead to the adoption of the term by the German Government. The concept of Industry 4.0 emphasizes on bringing intelligence, connectivity, and much broader applications of computerization to manufacturing.

The Aim

The aim of Industry 4.0 is to explore and exploit the huge potential of new technologies like

  • Availability and use of the internet and IoT
  • Cloud computing
  • Virtualization of the real world
  • Digital Transformation (DX) of business processes across industry

Data has become the center of most business models. Companies that are born in the digital era have a higher understanding of this point as compared to legacy companies.

For example: Enterprises like Facebook, Netflix, Amazon and Google began by investing largely into these “Futuristic” technologies. They have designed their products in a manner wherein they capture the user data in a far superior way than the traditional companies with hybrid digitization.

Benefits of Adopting the Industry 4.0 Concept

  • Fast pace time-to-market for new products/services
  • Superior customer response
  • Lower production expense
  • Efficient use of resources

Also, we must keep in mind that when it comes to the decreasing costs of industrial production, Industry 4.0 is looking good. According to some sources, Industry 4.0 factory could lower the costs of the following:

  • Production - 10-30%,
  • Logistic - 10-30%,
  • Quality management - 10-20%.

Some useful information regarding industry 4.0

  • It is estimated that by 2020, approximately 50 billion will be wirelessly connected to the internet.
  • 5G will be an important driver of Industry 4.0
  • Big data and analytics will be of critical importance for the success of the Industry 4.0 concept
  • A survey by McKinsey suggests that approximately 1.5 trillion USD of additional revenue would be generated from on-demand mobile and data-driven services by 2030

Industry 4.0 and India

India is very much keen on adopting Industry 4.0 and has taken several initiatives one such initiative is Smart Advanced Manufacturing and Rapid Transformation Hub (SAMARTH) - Udyog Bharat 4.0. This is an initiative of the Government of India under the department of heavy industry. The aim of this scheme was to enhance competitiveness in the Indian capital good sector and awareness about industry 4.0 among Indian manufacturing industries through demonstration centers.
