Enter into the 4th Industrial Revolution


Published on

The rules of the game have changed
The way goods are produced today is completely different, and so are the goods produced.

With the new trend in technology, consumers can now influence design and control production, and manufacturers are now able to adapt quickly to specific consumer demands.
This shift is particularly exciting for consumers who are able to see the results of their input taken into consideration.
Gone are the days for manufacturers who may be threatened by consumer feedback. Today the technology exists for the development and creation processes to engage consumers earlier to poll for their ideas and opinions. Consumers can become a part of the development process.

The evolution lead manufacturing to face other new challenges such as mass-customization, sustainability and 3D printing . Thus, factories have to be adapted and smarter to improve the consumer experience. Internet of Things, Big Data analytic and remote control are one of the key factors and must be supported by an efficient business process management to connect machines and real time data together. Then, OEMs will be able to answer glocal needs and lower time-to-market, cost while producing high quality products and/or services. Those who embrace this approach are ready to enter the 4th Industrial Revolution.

  • Oh well, we're still making tiny babysteps with these featured topics / technologies / gifts.

    But the human being does not compute to all this coming technology, I am afraid. There's also a tragedy in getting all things connected: How do we establish wireless connections to nature, the environment?

    Or let me put it straight: Can I judge the misery that happens in the bathroom by wiring my toilet brush? This is also a modular system: water, brush, toilet paper, diameter of the pipe. A local problem, probably happening global.

    The game may change, but certain rules will still apply.
    And I am still expecting the singularity.

  • Like all future-looking announcements, there's a bit of truth, a bit of hype and a bit of hope. I suspect that all of this will happen in time, but it'll be used and implemented by the youngsters. We oldsters will be naysayers, as our forefathers were about our time, until we see it happening all around us and our grandkids making it the new normal. My senior high daughter is in an engineering program and she's already built and shot 15' rockets, built fully functional robots, and is now creating working devices for their new projects on their new 3D printers. And they do everything by pad computing. The fact is: doubters will doubt, visionaries will innovate, and the rest will simply adopt the new products.
