The connected industry is on the rise
Industry 4.0 is characterized by intelligent machines and devices that are permanently networked with each other in the Internet of Things and produce a large amount of data. This gives the life cycle of a machine or plant a completely new meaning. It is the basis for new business models, new providers and new solutions in Industry 4.0. Software and networking are thus becoming the decisive strategic factors in Connected Industry.
Future machines will not only be smart, but they will also become autonomous through networking and with the help of machine learning. As a result, the machines themselves will know best how to complete an upcoming job or when maintenance needs to be performed. Software-based functions additionally make them adaptive – i.e., they permanently adjust their capabilities to the requirements placed on them.
Service for maintaining and optimizing machines is increasingly being built on digital data from the machines and is thus able to be offered much faster, better and more cost-effectively. In addition, the performance of the machine itself is increasingly becoming a service, giving rise to new business models for Industrie 4.0 such as pay per use. Industrial software is becoming the decisive factor for success.
Due to the shortage of skilled workers and the generation change, the usage behavior of machines is also changing significantly. Comprehensive user support through digital assistants will prevail in both the productive and ancillary processes of the machine and will determine how efficiently the machine is used. The basis of these digital services is digital data and its processing by artificial intelligence.
Due to the increasing importance of data, essential functions of the machine are shifting to the cloud. This not only enables new service business models and faster innovation cycles, but also more efficient operation of machines – benefits that customers will ultimately appreciate. The automation architecture of machines and plants will change fundamentally as a result. Only performance, real-time and safety will remain on the machine. This requires enormous adjustments to the internal development processes at machine and plant manufacturers.
The value-creation processes in a smart factory are absolutely transparent and recorded in data technology almost in real time. This opens up numerous new opportunities to offer the services provided in agile value creation networks. Various platform economies will emerge in market niches, in which product manufacturers do not necessarily also have to be the operators of the machines. The factory of the future will even host several different operators.
Industrialization 4.0 is driven by software solutions and smart services. As a result, previous innovations in mechanical and plant engineering – such as an improved machine – will largely fall by the wayside. The decisive factor will be how a machine can be integrated into the value creation process. Digital data, artificial intelligence and the corresponding application knowledge play a decisive role here.
Take advantage of our know-how from technology to business
Success in digitization requires more than just good software. Industry 4.0 also requires holistic consulting.
Digital transformation is a holistic challenge. In addition to competencies in industrial software development and cloud technologies, it requires above all the right mindset and new approaches. A key challenge of Industrialization 4.0 is therefore to get the people involved to change their thinking.
