In the maintenance sector, Smart Industry is of great importance. The integration of smart technologies and advanced data processing can increase productivity, efficiency and flexibility in the industry
Technology drives smart industry 4.0
Meanwhile, we have arrived at the fourth industrial revolution: Smart industry 4.0. This includes various technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), big data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), robotics and augmented reality (AR). By integrating these technologies into manufacturing processes, it becomes possible to collect and analyse real-time data. This allows the industry to react faster to changes and work more efficiently.
An important part of smart industry is the so-called 'connected factory', where all devices and machines in the factory are connected to each other via IoT. This makes it possible to monitor the status of machines in real time and detect any problems before they lead to breakdowns. This reduces downtime and increases efficiency, which is obviously important in the maintenance sector.
Another benefit of smart industry is the ability to customise products. By using big data analytics and AI, companies can identify customer preferences and trends in the market. This makes it possible to create personalised products within the maintenance industry that better meet customer needs.
Smart industry within the maintenance sector
Smart industry 4.0 is getting smarter by the day and within the maintenance sector there are several innovations, such as Digital twins and Exoskeletons, that contribute to this. All these developments have the potential to transform the industry and optimise production processes. The integration of these technologies in smart industry can lead to higher efficiency, lower costs and personalised products.
