How is Industry 4.0 revolutionizing production?
One of the most frequently envisioned concepts when talking about Industry 4.0 is the self-running factory. Within this context, an ERP system such as SAP automatically identifies the need for raw materials and orders them accordingly. Meanwhile, machine tools communicate with each other and notify the relevant maintenance company when they require maintenance. Sure, this might sound like science fiction now, but it will be a crucial competitive advantage in the future.
