Smart Industry or Industry 4.0

Smart Industry, also known as Industry 4.0, is all around us: from the data our car sends to the manufacturer to products that we design online and are produced promptly. The therm Smart Industry is mostly known as the digitalization of the manufacturing industry. This approach however, is too minimalistic. It suggests that it is only about making the production process smarter, while many more aspects are included. Smart Industry focuses on smart products, smart services, smart organization and different methods or procedures. In short, Smart Industry is about the impact of ICT and the Internet on the product, the production process, the business model and the people within a company. The major advantages? It makes products and processes more efficient, more flexible, of higher quality and tailored to the client.
