With the digital transformation, the industry sector is changing as well. Creative tasks are gaining in importance, whereas physically demanding tasks are increasingly being taken over by machines. The prerequisite for this is the implementation of artificial intelligence in industrial operations.
Artificial intelligence is also becoming increasingly important in industry and there is a crucial reason for it. Machines can take on physically demanding tasks and thus protect the health of employees – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Entrepreneurs and their employees therefore can concentrate on creative, organizing and planning roles. Networked systems make it possible to exchange data and information and to react intelligently to one another. In the digital future, machines and the goods produced will be equipped with sensors to communicate with other systems such as sales, production, customers, suppliers and development.
The machine is plaguing, employees are thinking
The automotive industry for instance is a pioneer of Industry 4.0. Basically, most of the tasks are already done automatically by machines. The focus is mostly on avoiding unplanned downtimes due to system failures, independent maintenance, placing orders and reducing rework. Employees have more time to develop new vehicle concepts while looking at whether AI is doing what it is supposed to do. The time saved brings with it a big winner: creativity.
Creative tasks are becoming increasingly important
Industry 4.0 starts a completely new way of working. Employees can contribute more and more to their ideas, focus on their strengths and thereby advance the industry enormously. But it is not only the areas of responsibility that are changing – with the use of AI, entrepreneurs and employees gain significantly more freedom. In many cases, they no longer have to be present for certain production processes. Data can be called up at any time and from anywhere in the world and machines can even be controlled from mobile devices. In the future, the competitiveness of companies will depend to a large extent on whether they know how to take advantage of these developments. Because the more people, machines and also the world are networked, the more essential it is to be part of it.
Industry 4.0 is just a step away
