With Industry 4.0, a fundamental change is taking place in industry – production is becoming more single part oriented, faster and more flexible. Industry standards on the basis of which components, machines and systems communicate reliably and securely with each other are essential for the successful implementation of Industry 4.0.

In Industry 3.0, we automate processes using logic processors and information technology. The process is automated based on human input, not by data. Under Industry 4.0, that same CNC machine would not only be able to follow set programming parameters, but also use data to streamline production processes.
