Just as steam power and mechanization, electricity and assembly line production, and computer technology all drove seismic business transformation over the past three centuries, Industry 4.0 will prove just as revolutionary.

The integration of information and communication technologies is the inevitable next step for organizations seeking to realize the full benefits of production automation, with systems networking attuned to levels of sophistication that can almost autonomously control the smart factories of the future and much more.

However, the dizzying array of benefits – many of which might solve the supply chain disruptions we see today – can seem a distant reward, with the significant challenges of talent, technology, sizeable investment, and time all standing in the way.
