Whitepaper - Industry 4.0: Manufacturing Automation

29 March 2018

Nidec Control Techniques asked a number of people working in automation how they felt about Industry 4.0. The goal was to analyse awareness and attitudes.

Defining what we mean by Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 relates to the fourth industrial revolution. A point where IT and physical equipment converge. It marks the stage where no longer are we making decisions based on gut feeling and experience, instead solid trends of data dictate equipment behaviour. It goes beyond just a single machine, and can encompass whole factories, if not companies, on a global scale. 

The growing momentum of Industry 4.0 

Now the concept seems grand in size, so it’s understandable that for many businesses the idea of total system integration is a long way off. It is for this reason that Nidec Control Techniques developed a piece of research to see what is really holding businesses back from exploiting the possibilities of Industry 4.0. 

Just take a look at the disruption innovative businesses like Amazon, Google and Apple have created. Each have ran with emerging technology. It’s clear that those ahead of the game will greatly benefit. 

The roots of the manufacturing automation research 

The company asked a number of people working in automation how they felt about Industry 4.0. The goal was to analyse awareness and attitudes.

Its sample base came from businesses across the globe who operate in a wide range of sectors. It’s taken the key points that came from the research and made the following document.
