The industrial world is changing and its becoming smarter with the rise of new technologies, changing the automation landscape into the next era currently known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Manufacturers are seeking ways to maintain profitability by increasing productivity and reducing operational costs.
Current automation trends favor the Connected or Smart Factory concept. Advancements in technology have taken the automation world to a new height. Computer systems are now expected to communicate and cooperate with each other with very little human involvement. Suppliers and customers can track statuses, automatically fulfill requests, manage their orders, check on invoices and payments accurately in real-time. Valuable data can also be collected and analyzed for future improvements.
