Industry 4.0 – "Smart Factory" explained

what exactly is a smart factory to understand what the term smart factory actually means in regards to industry fie upon't know we have to take a look at how modern industries work in production there is one central mind that knows what the finished product will look like this mind is the central control unit communicating with the individual modules if our product was a paper plane it would translate into this this is the central hub it knows what the plane will actually look like at the end and gives the paper and the folding instructions to the individual modules each module does a different work step in our case a different folding step and relays the result back to the central hub until the paper plane has been completely folded at the end so we see it works but can it still be improved how would this be done in industry fie upon't know in a smart factory at first sight it would appear quite similar but in this case the mind is located in the individual modules this means that they have a certain degree of self control this is possible because the instructions for the single work steps are right there on the product so each module knows what to do without having to communicate with the central hub in addition the modules of a smart factory are able to communicate with each other so the part finished product can be passed on right to the next module the result avoiding the detour over a central hub during production of a paper plane and any other product saves a lot of time the input from all sensors and engines of the machines are being processed locally in the modules so this means the control function has now been distributed and thanks to the information on the workpiece there is an intelligent and self-organized ensemble the communication paths grow shorter communication with each other information on work pieces and self-organization these are the three most important factors that are necessary for the modular and decentralized structure of a smart Factory and for this modular and decentralized construction Piltz offers its customers the industry fie upon't no proof automation system PSS 4000 as the perfect solution so the smart Factory becomes one part of the future we can already reach for today let us start together into the future

  1. Global industry 4.0 market generated revenue of $69.41 Billion in 2017 and is expected reach approximately $155.63 Billion by 2025 with a CAGR of 16.12%, and the market growth is primarily owing to increasing adoption of automation for quality production and better efficiency and cost of production leading to digitalisation.

  2. The data must be analized and organized, then you can improve the logic and implement it. This way you will have less downtime and quality problems. Just a pixel from the big picture.

  3. #Industry4.0 Market: By Technology (Big Data and Analytics, Augmented Reality, Autonomous Robots, Simulation, Horizontal and Vertical System Integration, Cloud Computing, Cyber Security, Internet of Things (IoT)); By Component (Transmitter, Memory, Others); By Industry Verticals (Energy, Healthcare, Transportation, others); By Connectivity (Wired, Wireless, Cellular, others) & By Geography – Forecast (2018-2023)

  4. This feels like BS so much. You do not decentralize just for sake of looking cool. Why is it more effective?

  5. Nice overview, it sounds like I could install your device and call it 4.0, but I'm guessing that is a million miles from the truth…

  6. I did not understand,
    Reason 1 : Fail to explain in video or,
    Reason 2: There is not much of difference between Lean Manufacturing and Industry 4.0

  7. Sorry, but I don't get this.

    I never heard of an old type of factory where a produced thing is brought to some central hub for inspection in between every step of production.
    Did anyone ever do that?

    In every industrial production process I ever heard of, the materials move through a chain of different steps and the people or machines at every step knew what they were supposed to do and did it without the need of constant communication with "the brain" and without the need to have instructions on every single piece that comes through.

    The idea that you need to put a chip on every part, which contains the instructions what to do with it, not only seems archaic, primitive and like a step backwards to me, considering that that data could just be sent to the machines via cable or wireless signals, it also has to be more expensive and material consuming. Those chips and their installation cost something too, after all.

    I really don't get it.

  8. Industry 4 is total BS! Its already something that have been already integrated with new systems step by step for last 10 years. It is not future its today/last decade at best.
