Visions of Industry 4.0
A new level of socio-technical interaction: Autonomous and self-organized
production resources carry out planning processes in value chains
Smart products: The products and the tolerable operating parameter of a
certain production process are mutually known. These products can be
grouped to optimize production.
Individualized production: Flexible reconfiguration enables industries to
consider the specific characteristics of customer demand and product
during the design, planning, production, and recycling phase.
Autonomous control: Employees control and configure intelligent
production resources based on targets sensitive to the present context.
Product design controls product-related data: Product-related data
becomes a central feature in managing its product life cycle.
