Industry 4.0: men, machine and optmisation
The approach of companies all over the world to the new era of Industry 4.0 goes towards automation and the use of intelligent technologies that, when applied to machinery, optimize work thanks also to the greater availability of information and data.
The company network becomes a dialogue both between machine and machine, and between production line and operator.
The human factor in Industry 4.0
Considering the promised (and maintained) benefits of technological innovations, the risk is to put aside man, as operator.
It is undeniable that the productivity of machines, in some cases, proved to be superior to that of humans, but it is equally important to observe how, even in a highly digitalised context of industry, the human role is essential.
Indeed, the technology of machinery oriented towards Industry 4.0, connectivity and automation, facilitates the task of the operator, who acquires tools and processes that simplify and make his work more productive.
Some examples? Interactive PLCs that suggested operational flows, organizational data processing in significant parameters, remote assistance.
