Industry 4.0?

Industry 4.0?

In popular culture, automation and connectivity develop talks about the robotization of the human workforce, where the subject will be supplanted by machines. The cinema and science fiction have influenced this conception of an automatic world where human beings, although they will benefit from the facilities it provides for production, calls into question the development of human intelligence and the occupational occupation of people.

Under this premise, it is that the implementation of Industry 4.0 trends has been wrongly understood, considering it a questionable, expensive trend and far removed from the production processes of small and medium-sized companies, being used only from the large industrial niches where it is currently used.

How is it used

However, what is Industry 4.0? How is it used? And what benefits does it bring to people? We are in a new industrial stage that is committed to automation, connectivity and globalization. Combining advanced production and operations techniques with intelligent technologies that integrate organizations, people and resources. This industrial revolution is developed in technologies such as robotics, communication, infrastructure, supply chain techniques or philosophies, analytics, nanotechnology and the Internet of Things (IoT), elements that make up the complete integration of a factory, a production site or a group of production sites, among others.

Supplanted by machines

Where organizations are based on the identification of their needs to invest in the development of advanced automation and digitization processes, generating a positive impact on the industry with its various sectors and society. These benefits translate into the automation of its industrial processes, such as floor control processes, which allow the interconnection of all its areas for joint work. Industry 4.0 also takes advantage of investment in renewable energy issues, developing energy efficiency programs to eliminate the consumption of resources such as water for the generation of electricity in its different processes, replacing the use of critical resources with the use of clean resources such as solar energy.

One of the basic concepts of Industry 4.0 is the Internet of Things (IoT), in its industrial branch it incorporates in the production processes of organizations the interconnectivity of all the elements present in its plant for its adequate interaction, generating a process of comprehensive communication that shows the relevance of each of the supply processes, connecting people, resources and processes in a set to facilitate the optimization of resources, the reduction of waste, process savings and the profitability of the organizations.
