The challenges of industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 is an organizational model based on the information technologies of the trend in digital transformation, in which technologies such as Cloud Computing, the Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data analysis, reality Increased, 3D printing and collaborative robotics will transform the current operation of the industry through digitalization.

The digitalization of the industry is a process that is developed in a bidirectional way, directly, allowing to obtain information on the production processes or products already manufactured, through the analysis of data and sensors generating productivity in terms of product improvement.

You can also access products from 3D printing, or generate services through augmented reality, improving the decision form through the simulation of scenarios. In this sense there will be significant changes and an example of this will be personalized services, since the design, production and sale of them will be shorter and more profitable, which will be a source of competitiveness for the industries in terms of costs, the hand of work and above all a higher social commitment.

The transformation in terms of production processes will be carried out through information systems to make them more efficient, which is why the biggest challenge will be the development of software and analysis systems that convert the flow of data produced by the factories Smart in useful and valuable information.

Therefore, companies must be pioneers of technology transformation in the flexible and individualized manufacturing process as well as adapting to the market and the new needs of customers. A great advantage will be the use of information for the analysis of channels such as (CMS, SCM, CRM, FCM, HRM, Help Desk, social networks, IoT) that can analyze and export in real-time.

Facing these challenges successfully will allow the generation of a new industrial model in which innovation is collaborative, productive means are connected and completely flexible, supply chains are integrated and distribution and customer service channels are digital thanks to hyper-connectivity. since, through this digitalization, customers are more informed today and have immediate access to the offer of industrial companies around the world.
