Germany and the United States have allocated earmarked funds for strategic research and the realization of industry 4.0. Germany allocated US $ 222 million to the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) RES-COM and other projects. Similarly, the United States has launched a Smart Manufacturing Leadership Coalition and other research projects.
Other countries, including Britain, have shown great enthusiasm for industry 4.0. GAMBICA and CLPA and other manufacturers and trade institutions have expressed support. While these countries have not yet announced major initiatives, they certainly have already provided strong support for Industry 4.0.
It is pleasing to note that many of the technologies associated with Industrial 4.0 have emerged. However, to use these technologies, companies need to spend huge sums of money, especially those who want to use these technologies to pre-empt the company.For most companies, the shift to industry 4.0 will be a gradual evolution rather than a rapid revolution. The next few years, the old system for the manufacturing sector is still necessary.
Industry 4.0 will eventually become a significant change in manufacturing and industry. In the long term, the use of advanced software in factory equipment can help the computer to automatically adjust and make more autonomous decisions. This also means that at the factory, the tasks currently performed by a central host will be performed by the system components.In the years to come, with the emergence of intelligent factories around the world, geographic boundaries and data separation between factories may become a thing of the past.
