From Tesis IT & Automation we promote this strategy that defines a revolution in production and manufacturing processes so that the most advanced technologies are integrated into them, allowing flexibility, greater security, control and cost reduction
The digitization of processes and hyperconnectivity, as well as the globalization of the economy, are transforming the economic, social and industrial model.
Industry 4.0 is the transformation of the global sphere of industrial production through the union of digital technology and the internet with conventional industry.
As benefits we can mention:
- Higher productivity and better resource management.
More efficient decision making based on real-time information.
Optimal and integrated production processes.
- Increased flexibility to achieve mass and personalized production in real time.
- Direct communication between customers and organizations, which means that we can better understand what customers need.
- Reduction of manufacturing time both in the designs of new products and in the commercialization of these.
- Reduction of the percentage of defects or wastage in factories since it will be possible to test the prototypes virtually and the assembly lines will be optimized.
Industry 4.0 is based on the following principles:
- Interoperability: communication capacity of all elements of the factory, cyber-physical systems, robots, corporate information systems, intelligent products and people, as well as third-party systems.
- Decentralization: the ability to design autonomous threads within the factory with cyber-physical elements with the ability to make autonomous decisions.
Real-time analytics: the ability to collect and analyze large amounts of data (Big Data) that allow the monitoring, control and optimization of processes, facilitating any results and decisions derived from the process immediately and at all times.
- Virtualization: the ability to generate a virtual copy of the factory by collecting data and monetizing industrial (physical) processes, obtaining virtual plant models and simulation models.
- Service orientation: the ability to transfer the new value generated to the client in the form of new services or improved services with the exploitation of new disruptive business models.
- Modularity and scalability: the flexibility and elasticity to adapt to the needs of the industry and the business at all times, with the facility to scale the technical capacity of the system according to the technical requirements required by the evolution of business demand in each case.
