Today it is common to find news related to Industry 4.0, but are we clear about what this concept is and how it influences our factories?
The idea behind the Industry 4.0 concept is the integration at all levels between the real or physical world and the digital world, seeking to achieve real-time access to production data and metrics, which allows not only monitoring the status of the production and systems, but also anticipate their needs.
This integration can be done at several levels, but it is mainly based on 3:
The final objective is to achieve greater knowledge in real time of everything that happens in the factory, and thus speed up decision-making on key elements of it.
The applications of this new approach are unlimited, but we can highlight some that are already an essential part of any factory that tries to compete in today's globalized industry:
In order to direct this transition, companies such as AM SOLUCIONES AUTOMATIZACIÓN, S.L. are necessary, which provide knowledge not only in automation of PLCs and industrial robotics, but also in communications, connectivity between systems, databases, Scadas, IoT and all those elements that allow integration between machines and digital systems.
