The Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, Intelligent Automation and Robotic Technologies are enabling the deployment of smart, data-driven manufacturing solutions that improve efficiency, boost productivity and enable the development of new services. These intelligent solutions are automated and connected. Business processes linking suppliers and clients are also becoming more integrated, with the introduction of comprehensive enterprise solutions that consolidate people, machinery, installations, logistics, products and services into streamlined systems. This development raises concerns for manufacturers:primarily, how to start their Industrie 4.0 migration and develop the optimal roadmap for their business. Increasing connectivity also begs the question of how safe, secure and reliable potential solutions are, and how interoperable different vendors’ various components are when exchanging information.
