Challenges of Embracing Industry 4.0

To grasp the many benefits of Industry 4.0, businesses need to understand that it also comes with challenges, especially when dealing with multiple manufacturing lines, and know how to mitigate them.

  • Interconnecting multiple manufacturing lines

    Obtaining information transparency, optimal performance and cost reduction with multiple interconnected manufacturing lines can be a complex issue.

  • Balancing centralization & self-sufficiency

    Each manufacturing line should be self-sufficient taking decentralized decisions, however when excessive, self-sufficiency can lead to duplication of effort. A good balance leads to a reduction of revenue loss.

  • Rise of cyber attacks

    High connectivity in the industry has increased the number of cyber attacks, which compromise digital security.

  • Increase in data collection & consumption

    Every time a more resilient system is needed to cope with the high data mass.
