Industry 4.0 Trends
The manufacturing industry has gone through an extreme change with the introduction of Industry 4.0. New technologies and tools have allowed the manufacturing 4.0 industry to increase their production, decrease their expenses, and evolve in the market.
There is still time for the introduction of Industry 5.0, but the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the arrival of Industry 5.0. It is all about the balance between human resources and smart machines, in other words, to unite the human race with machines.
Well, we are here to tell you the top Industry 4.0 trends that will dominate manufacturing in 2021:
Internet of Things (IoT)
Internet of Things (IoT) is still a big thing. Even though it is becoming common in the manufacturing industry, however, it remains at the top of the technologies list because of flexibility and innovation.
The interconnection of different devices within the secured internet support and to make well-strategic decisions with the help of real-time data have only made IoT more valuable than ever.
Big Data and Analytics
IoT being at the top of the technologies list can only mean that big data is an even bigger trend than before. Manufacturers can gain greater visibility into big data by transforming every surface into sensors for collecting data to generate real-time insights to make strategic decisions.
Big Data and Analytics are essential to reanalyze the forecasting and acquire a successful COVID-19 exit strategy.
Human Augmentation and Extended Reality
In the difficult times of COVID-19, assistive technology like virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) has shown many manufacturers or individuals a new way to deal with work and work-related issues.
These Industry 4.0 technologies are already in use for full-scale production and post-production processes. But enhancing the way of human-to-machine interaction towards the machine enabled workers to have supported touchless service models.
3D Printing performs production faster and cheaper. The rapid prototyping feature of 3D printing helps the manufacturers to test the initial product quickly in a safe setting and notice the errors that an individual can’t.
It helps to manufacture products on demand rather than to mass manufacture products and warehouse them. It saves time, money, and material.
Other Industry 4.0 technologies are trending every year. Latest trends and technology implementation can help manufacturers and other industries to increase profits, decrease expenses, collect business insights, and speed up the market.
