Industry 4.0 and Smart Factory

Introduction to the 4th indutrial revolution

Fact of the 4th industrial revolution is becoming more apparent now, then ever. Are we ready for it and what new challenges will we face?

  • We live in times when the amount of collected data is bigger than ever
  • The 3rd industrial revolution gave automatization to selected processes. But indutry changed and we along with it. People learned to use collected data to link processes and machines together and give a new view on client and product needs.
  • The 4th indutrial revolution lets us connect multiple machines together to crate a digitized ecosystem and integrate a stream of values in multiple forms. It also speeds up automatization of processes and implementing robots in workspaces on mass scale.
  • The wide spread of mobile communication gives us ability to transfer data. Because of that we can use machines to crate internet of things (IoT).

The course will be led in Polish
