The world is in the midst of reform. People are changing, practices are changing and so are the industries and all only for the better of the world and the greater good. This ongoing reform has brought the aspect of what we call as industry 4.0 as a part of this change. This also came as the smart factory for the beginning of the 4th Industrial Revolution

Do you know what this actually means? Are you prepared for this revolution? 

Read on and get an overview of industry 4.0.

Now that you are aware of the term, let’s go into its components. See what makes this industry what it is.

Components Of Industry 4.0


Industrial IoT


This is a web that is created by the connection of all the devices and systems or machines that are part of an industry




It is the collective data storage that works with IoT and provides data for analysis. In a nutshell, this is a record of any industry.


Cognitive Computing


This is the sector where Artificial Intelligence or AI operates.


Cyber-Physical Systems


Systems that operate on an algorithm are covered under this term or sector.

All of the above-mentioned components, when combined together, form the fundamentals of industry 4.0. These components opened a world of massive possibilities. It made concepts like automated factories possible, minimized the margin of human error in any production and most of all, saved a huge amount of human resources.

Distinguishing Industry 3.0 And Industry 4.0?

The arrival and longevity of 3.0 witnessed of use of machines and technical instruments operated by humans. The major change with 4.0 is the self-sufficiency that is being brought with the new industry. Industry 3.0 required humans to start or command the machines for an automated process with logic processors and data analysis. 

While on the other hand, 4.0 won’t eradicate the involvement of humans in the process but makes the process simpler. The data that was required to be recorded and analyses by humans, which have a margin of human error, will be done by the machine itself. This reduces the error margin and helps predict any complications.

In a nutshell, it can be said that the future planning of the entire industry sector will be much easier. On top of that, this industry will focus more on environmental sustainability then damaging it.
