Industry 4.0 would not be possible without the automation of processes. This implies, to a large extent, getting the digitalization of equipment and technologies of a factory so that there is bidirectional communication through an Internet connection.
In the industry there are very different technologies that can be automated. Each industry has its peculiarities, but, to name a few, any assembly or processing chain can include some degree of automation, as well as control systems, systems such as 3D printers or robots, or autonomous vehicles that circulate through "Streets" of factories carrying materials or workers.
There is a set of technologies that facilitate the automation of processes in this new connected industry, either because they allow transforming traditional systems into connected systems (Internet of Things, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, predictive analytics, Cloud Computing ...) such as those they allow to increase the operative capacities within the value chain (collaborative robotics, simulation, augmented reality, artificial vision, additive manufacturing ...).
The industry needs to embrace automation to be competitive. The digital transformation is a great opportunity for the Spanish industry because it allows improving competitiveness in a global market, posing challenges while generating opportunities for the sector, which must adapt its processes, products and business models.
CONNECTED INDUSTRY 4.0.
Therefore, the modernization of the factories, the introduction of these new connected technologies and the digital transformation are fundamental today. Compared to traditional production, the new 4.0 connected industry offers greater efficiency, more control, cost reduction, the elimination of human error.
