Having a passion to work on Machine data & analytics is now a consultant to Electrono Solutions who have expertise in Remote Engineering, implemented Industry IoT in major Automobile & manufacturing industries connecting CNC's , Robots, PLC's, HMI's, non-conventional machines for Data Analytics.Industry 4.0 or IIoT is transforming manufacturing industries to involve more with physical cyber systems to achieve better results in Production, Maintenance & Quality. In India, there is drive & a need to ensure to adhere to the norms of BSVI in Automobile sector which can be achieved only through Industry 4.0.This is going to be a big revolution, as we have seen in 1980-90's during Banks & Financial institutions adapting Computers & IT, and this had help the entire industry to transform to the new banking system. Gone are those days where we had to physically go to bank, stand in queue with withdrawal slips or depositing money. Moreover, mobiles have taken this further more convenience of banking anytime & anywhere.Industry 4.0 has evolved from Industry 1.0 which was introduced in 18th century where automobiles were driven by steam and water.Industry 2.0 was in early 19th century where we had seen mass production of Automobiles powered by Electricity.Industry 3.0 was seen during end of 19th century where Electronics & Software were introduced into Automobile to have better comfort, convenience & luxury.We are heading towards the next Digital Era which is Industry 4.0, which involves bringing in all machines on digital platform with cyber physical systems, make a network layer, build data layer, application layer with analytics.There is need for teams who have expertise in Engineering Mechanical, Electrical, Electronics, Automobile and Computer Science with application knowledge of PLC's CNC's who would be able to build appropriate solutions.Mere implementation of readily available data analytical tools or building up PC's to fetch data will not provide any useful results. Few manufacturing industries who tried to build such solutions in-house were unsuccessful to great extent due to limitations on the entire knowledge.As per the Forbes, Accenture source on market analysis. We will see about $28 billion amount of expected cost reduction in automotive sector from 2016-2010. There will be overall of 2.6 percent annual reduction in Inventory levels Expected from adopting Industry 4.0. It is expected to have at least 30 percent increases in Productivity that would be achieved with IIoT adopters.
