Industry 4.0 refers to the impact information and communication technologies are having on real-time optimization and networking for efficient automation and production.
Why is this skill important?
When we talk about Industry 4.0, we mean the impact information and communication technologies (ICT) are having on real-time optimization and networking for efficient automation and production. This is sometimes also called the “fourth industrial revolution”.
It is the role of the Digital Production Systems Technician to implement Industry 4.0 in businesses, designing and implementing systems, introducing both software and hardware, and supporting programmes, especially cybersecurity.
A Digital Production Systems Technician must be continually aware of changes and recognize advances in technology means they must be continually learning.
They must understand the business case for implementing Industry 4.0 and design systems accordingly. They should combine strong technical knowledge with an eye on future industry developments, while being constantly aware of risk and security.
