So, I’ve been thinking of this quite a lot lately. Industry 4.0 it’s a little bit like a revolution in how our industrial system is shifting. It has a lot to do with this new concept of IoT (Internet of Things). But I think it’s also further developed by the “kickstarter” and “Etsy” trend.
This notion that you can decentralize industrialization is not a new one I’m sure, but it is quite difficult to accomplish.
Most industries are highly specialized machines; raw material in, finished product out, and repeat. Add in some R&D and some Sales people and you have the entire picture.
