Industry 3.0 vs. Industry 4.0

Many companies, both software makers and manufacturers, describe themselves as Industry 4.0 partners. But are they really? These are the most fundamental differences between the 3.0 and 4.0 eras:

Industry 3.0:

  • Production control: centralized, rigid, static
  • Data processing and disclosure: Time delayed
  • Software management: all-in-one software package – System of Record
  • Usage rights and costs: Licenses (+lots of customization).

Industry 4.0:

  • Production control: Decentralized, flexible
  • Data processing and disclosure: Real-time
  • Software Management: System of Experience: Open database supplemented by cloud apps.
  • Usage rights and costs: Pay-per-Use (+self-integrate via API).

Using these criteria, you can determine:

  • Whether it is smart, for example, to have a large ERP custom built
  • Whether getting more modules from the same software maker is the best buy
  • Or to have print reports created for administration

Hint: all of these tasks can be done more efficiently).
