Innovation in the industry is accompanied by great opportunities and new challenges, such as managing an immense amount of information. EKR Orchestra makes it possible to deal with them
The term industry 4.0 refers to the set of tools and trends in industrial automation that integrate new technologies with the aim of improving working conditions by increasing productivity and quality in the plants.
The origin of the name and of the same philosophy can be traced back to a German project, which included investments in infrastructures, schools, energy systems and research centers to modernize the production system.
The term 4.0 indicates what many consider the fourth industrial revolution.
Business success is determined by innovation
The advancement of technologies has brought new production methods to the market, not only in the more computerized sectors, but also in more traditional sectors . The digitization of processes is therefore radically changing the way of doing industry, on all levels.
Customer expectations have grown exponentially , with the desire to have more personalized and efficient products and services, and with the best quality / price ratio.
And it is precisely here that new technologies come into play: the Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, specific database analysis become an essential weapon for company as they are able to anticipate customer needs, increase production and test feedback on the product put on the market in real time.
