[Preamble: I have been invited by Dell Technologies as a delegate to their upcoming Dell Technologies World from Mar 7-9, 2018 in Las Vegas, USA. My expenses, travel and accommodation will be paid by Dell Technologies, the organizer and I was not obligated to blog or promote the technologies presented at this event. The content of this blog is of my own opinions and views]
This may seem a little strange. How does Industry 4.0 relate to Dell Technologies?
Recently, I was involved in an Industry 4.0 consortium called Data Industry 4.0 (di 4.0). The objective of the consortium is to combine the foundations of 5S (seiri, seiton, seiso, seiketsu, and shitsuke), QRQC (Quick Response Quality Control) and Kaizen methodologies with the 9 pillars of Industry 4.0 with a strong data insight focus.
Industry 4.0 has been the latest trend in new technologies in the manufacturing world. It is sweeping the manufacturing industry segment by storm, leading with the nine pillars of Industry 4.0:
- Horizontal and Vertical System Integration
- Industrial Internet of Things
- Additive Manufacturing
- Cloud Computing
- Augmented Reality
- Big Data and Analytics
- Autonomous Robots
