We are on the verge of industry 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution. Industry 4.0 is emerging to meet demand for tailor fit products at affordable prices. At the same time it will give manufacturers a highly flexible mass production processes that can be rapidly adapter to market changes.

Industry 4.0 calls for an agile and affordable manufacturing fueled by technology enablers such as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Cyber Physical System, 3D printing, cloud computing, and big data. This ties the world of production and networking in a connected environment. The ERP & MES systems becomes the backbone to the network; connecting logistics systems, shop floor facilities, smart machines, sensors and devices to communicate with each other and exchange commands.
