The industry 4.0 It is a new concept even in developing, that will mark major changes in society coming years. As in the eighteenth century was marked by the development of the steam engine, the nineteenth century by electricity and the twentieth century by automation, in the XXI century we are living the call Fourth Industrial Revolution whose core is the development of smart factory.
There are many benefits that are obtained in the Industry 4.0; the digitization of business processes in real time, greater transparency among companies -factor key for technology to his feet, greater connectivity between different machines from different vendors even, greater flexibility in programming and in industrial processes, allowing reduce errors, the automation of small and large businesses, which allows to reach productivity costs that offset production in low cost countries, and especially make products according to customer requirements and not based on mass production by economies of scale, It will occur what is consumed.
History tells us that all industrial revolutions have advantages, and we see that of course also this, we are living in the s. XXI, but it has some disadvantages that we should provide for its implementation process well. I was raised an issue: If there is increasing presence of "artificial intelligence" in industries, and human presence is increasingly dispensable: Where will people? Will they get the robots move factories to humans?
Parallel to this process of creating "artificial intelligence" to put at the service of man, the advances are increasingly faster you are doing in the field of neuroscience and allow us to know precisely brain biology. And the answer that neuroscience gives to this question is that robots can beat humans in many things, but remaining spaces in which humans have advantage. Neuroscience does not believe that robots can move people because they can not build robots with emotional intelligence. Key to deciding, influence, negotiate, lead and ultimately achieve objectives and goals in the most effective way.
Robots will always be at the service of man, so that it can work better and to choose those positions where they add value to the business; will be routine work and more physical action which are relegated to robots.
Therefore we can conclude that the Industry 4.0 It approaches to manufacturing plants to make them smart factories where people and robots work together in the same space, unfenced between machines and men, but it is both essential and irreplaceable.
