INDUSTRY 4.0

The term Industry 4.0, or “Industrie 4.0”, refers to the fourth industrial revolution. It originates from a project in the high-tech strategy of the German government, which promotes the computerization of manufacturing. The term Industrie 4.0 was first used in 2011 at the Hanover Fair. In October 2012 the Working Group on Industry 4.0 chaired by Siegfried Dais (Robert Bosch GmbH) and Kagermann (acatech) presented a set of Industry 4.0 implementation recommendations to the German federal government. On 8 April 2013 at the Hanover Fair the final report of the Working Group Industry 4.0 was presented. In 2015 a similar report was done involving Swedish Industrial companies. Combient have interaction and exchange with the Industrie 4.0 initiative in Germany.
