The rise of automation and machinery capable of talking to one another has led many experts to proclaim that we are in the age of the fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0), with the potential to change not only manufacturing but the world.
These Industrial Revolutions appear to be happening at an ever-increasing ratedue to rapid technological advancements.
Meaning it is crucial for factories to stay ahead of these advancements as each passing Industrial Revolution has offered vast opportunities for factories to improve their efficiency and product quality, whilst increasing output by utilising new, innovative methods.
