Implementation of Industry 4.0 and Industrial Robots in the Manufacturing Processes

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems book series (LNNS, volume 76)


The fourth industrial revolution or Industry 4.0 is already present around us, but the concept itself is not widespread. The implementation of Industry 4.0 will improve many aspects of human life in all segments. The implementation will initiate changes in business paradigms and manufacturing models, which will be reflected on all levels of manufacturing processes, as well as supply chains, including all workers in the manufacturing process, managers, cyber-physical system designers, and end-users. We are witness to big changes in all industry branches, with new business methods, product system transformation, consumption, delivery and transportation emerging, owing to the implementation of new technological discoveries that include: robotics & automation, Internet of Things (IoT), 3D printers, smart sensors, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID,) etc. The implementation strategy of Industry 4.0 is to enable the adjustment of industrial production to complete intelligent automation, which means introducing self-automation, self-configuration, self-diagnosis and problem-solving, knowledge and intelligent decision-making. On the other hand, there are many challenges in the coming period, such as issues of changing business paradigms, legal issues, resource planning, security issues, standardization issues, and many other. We must point out that the success or failure to implement Industry 4.0 lies in the hands of all participants in the production chain, from the manufacturer to the end-users.
