Industry 4.0 or Smart Factory stands for technological change in the manufacturing industry with a focus on the integration of physical systems. In the course of the introduction of the IIoT Industrial Internet of Things, every device is connected to the Internet to enable the exchange of immense amounts of data in real time and thus to facilitate the effective control of several production phases via manufacturing management systems. Retrofitting, the introduction of new technologies such as sensors and their connection to existing devices are also well received. IT supports the classic approaches of lean management by avoiding unnecessary material consumption and reducing costs.
