#CIMdataIndia2018

Industry 4.0 – Its Global Impact & Status

CIMdata’s 2018 PLM Market & Industry Forum,

CIMdata’s roots go back to computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM), a concept from the 1970s where computers control the entire manufacturing process. While some large companies invested heavily, much of the CIM vision went unrealized. Fast forward to today, where sensors, computing, and communication devices are bountiful and cheap, and the new vision is Industry 4.0, a concept that started in Germany in 2011 and is now embraced around the world. Beyond adoption by industry, it is embodied in national initiatives in China (Made in China 2025), India (Make in India), and many other countries.

The core design principles of Industry 4.0 are interoperability, information transparency (including the notion of the digital twin), technical assistance (augmenting humans in analysis and physical work), and decentralized decision making. Some people talk about Industry 4.0 as the convergence of information technology (IT) and operation technology (OT); a bridging of digital and physical, cyber-physical production systems enabled by the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). At a practical level, however, companies are looking to employ these processes and enabling technologies to facilitate mass customization, allowing them to make money while serving markets of one.

The Internet of Things (IoT) provides new opportunities for understanding how products are manufactured and used in the real world. Vast quantities of data will need to be captured, analyzed, combined with social and other real-world data (e.g., time and location), and presented to help humans to make better decisions more quickly.

Predictive analytics and cognitive solutions can identify the best action needed to maintain, overhaul, or replace vital assets. In many cases, this action will be to allow the system to decide to act, especially in those situations where human-in-the-loop may be too slow. Security is a good example where network intrusions can happen too fast for human admins to respond quickly enough.

Digital twins will help companies better design products and their manufacturing processes, as well as helping to understand and maintain the product in use. Digital twins can be used early in development to test customer reactions to product concepts, and later in the lifecycle to support service. It is important to emphasize that while all use the same phrase, digital twin, these twins are fraternal. Solution providers, driven by their offerings, partnerships, and strategies, mean very different things when they use this phrase. Industrial firms just need to be sure that the parts of the lifecycle of most interest to them are the best supported by their chosen solution providers.

Industrial companies, software and service providers, and governments see the opportunities made possible and are investing. As the PLM Market & Industry Forum takes place in several countries and regions—the United States, Germany, India, China, and Japan—that are all committed to this topic, CIMdata has decided to use the 2018 PLM Market & Industry Forum as a platform to help move this conversation forward from a PLM perspective. To make this possible each global session will start with a presentation about the status of Industry 4.0 promotion and adoption in that country and region. CIMdata has researched the leading solution providers and industrial companies to take the pulse of Industry 4.0, focusing on early successes, key learnings, and issues that must be tackled. This information will be used to engage the audience, and to gather and report additional findings after the session.

As members of the PLM Economy, it is important that you leverage this new wave with your customers. When adopting PLM, CIMdata advises clients to always position PLM initiatives within broader corporate or industry objectives, and Industry 4.0 and its related need for end-to-end digitalization is the perfect opportunity. With companies planning to spend a significant portion of their IT budget on Industry 4.0 initiatives, the PLM industry must be part of the solution. Of course, some of the leading firms are already leveraging this in their messaging but many still need to jump in to catch the digitalization wave.

The roots of CIMdata go back to computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM), a concept from the 1970s about computers controlling the entire manufacturing process. While some large companies invested millions (or tens of millions), much of the CIM vision went unrealized. Fast forward to today, where sensors, computing, and communication devices are bountiful and cheap, and the new vision is Industry 4.0, a concept that started in Germany now embraced around the world (and referred to there as Industrie 4.0.). Beyond adoption simply by industry, it is embodied in national initiatives in both China (Made in China 2025) and India (Make in India). The core design principles of Industry 4.0 are interoperability, information transparency (including the notion of the digital twin), technical assistance (augmenting humans in analysis and physical work), and decentralized decision making. Some talk about Industry 4.0 as the convergence of information technology (IT) and operation technology (OT), a bridging of digital and physical, cyber-physical production systems enabled by the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

At a practical level, companies are looking to employ these technologies and processes to enable mass customization, being able to make money serving markets of one. The Internet of Things (IoT) opens new opportunities to understand the intricacies of how products are manufactured and used in the real world. The vast quantities of data will need to be captured, analyzed, combined with social and other real-world data (e.g., time and location), and presented to help humans to make better decisions more quickly.

Providers mean very different things when they use this phrase, driven by their offerings, partnerships, and strategies. Industrial firms just need to be sure the parts of the lifecycle of most interest be the best supported by the chosen providers.

The German government kicked off a project entitled “Industrie 4.0” in 2011, but the concept predates that event. Industrial companies, solution and service providers, and governments see the opportunities made possible and are investing. Since CIMdata conducts the Forum in a range of countries—the United States, Germany, India, China, and Japan—that are all committed to this topic, CIMdata decided to use the PLM Market & Industry Forum to help move the conversation forward. Each session begins with a short introductory presentation about the status of Industry 4.0 promotion and adoption in that country and region.

For members of the PLM Economy, it is important to leverage this new wave with your customers. People will be talking. When adopting PLM, CIMdata advises clients to always position PLM initiatives within broader corporate or industry objectives, and Industry 4.0 and its related need for end-to-end digitalization is a perfect opportunity. If companies are planning to spend a significant portion of their IT budget on Industry 4.0 initiatives in a few years, it behooves the PLM industry to be part of the solution set. Of course, some of the leading firms are already leveraging this in their messaging and many others need to jump in to catch the digitalization wave.
