Industry 4.0, what is it and what does it mean to us?

The underlying concept of Industry 4.0 is to connect embedded systems and smart production facilities to generate a digital convergence between industry, business and internal functions and processes. Industry 4.0 refers to a fourth industrial revolution (following water/steam power, mass production and automation through IT and robotics) and introduces the concept of "cyber-physical systems" to differentiate this new evolutionary phase from the electronic automation that has gone before. 

We now are tasked to working toward concurrently developing smart products and smart manufacturing processes. But, before we can begin to think about networking machinery, sensors and control systems together and we can gain the ability to collect and analyze an abundance of real-time shop-floor data where it creates transparency for smart decision making on the shop floor, we must begin to understand the results of our current processes and understand how to optimize the processes in order to improve yield & productivity. We must begin to understand the data of our processes in order to utilize the information as part of a feedback loop that allows for seamless networking of machinery to achieve smart manufacturing.

At this forum, Designing a High Yield SMT Process, our panel of speakers are prepared to present information that not only will be valuable in improving today’s manufacturing processes but it will be the foundation of future manufacturing practices for creating a smart production facility.
