The fourth industrial revolution has been introduced in recent years. It's said that Industry 4.0 is the future of the factory where both the objects, which will be equipped with RFID devices, and the machines, will intelligently to communicate with each other in a secure networked environment. In the smart factory, intelligent machines can perform complex tasks while communicating with other machines. The machines will be able to detect mechanical issues or material shortages and then send instant messages to a live person for immediate troubleshooting. For example, the machines detect material shortages, a live person in the supply chain department will be notified immediately so they will be able to solve the problems within a short period of time. This will help to reduce production down time and avoid production delays or shutdowns.
Industry 4.0 is replacing the traditional working algorithm by providing more intelligent manufacturing equipment and environments. Digitalization, electronic, automation and mobility will be implemented into the systems and workflow management will improve productivity and quality. Industry 4.0 factory will not only reduce the cost of human labor but bring more benefits including improved productivity, efficiency, quality, accuracy, reduced human errors, centralized information, and data flow management enabling instant communication between each department. Industry 4.0 is the trend of the future smart factory and BCM is ready to provide the best solutions to help our clients migrate their systems with the next generation of computing products.
