For developing countries, Industry 4.0 is about creating appropriate levels of automation and digitisation in order to achieve flexibility and productivity. But also taking into accounting the socio-economic context and the local traditions and skills of the people living in that region.
It is also known as the ‘fourth industrial revolution’.
But it is not a silver bullet that will totally transform manufacturing, notes Dave Wibberley, managing director at Adroit Technologies.
“Industry 4.0 refers to a set of tools and services. To be effective, these tools and services depend on the necessary resources and knowledge being in place in processes. You need to achieve world-class manufacturing and tooling first,” he says.
