What is Industry 4.0
Industry 4.0 is the next iteration in the development of modern industry. Starting with the introduction of the Steam engine in the late 1800’s, to the production line and the computer, industry has progressed and changed society. Industry 4.0 is a game changer for manufacturing. Industry 4.0 takes advantage of the latest advances in technology including advanced internet communications capabilities, data science and big data, Internet of things, additive manufacturing and automation/integration. Industry upgrading to Industry 4.0 can benefit from on these new capabilities changing the face of manufacturing and creating economic opportunity.
Industry has stepped up, but the biggest hurdle is the need for properly trained, skilled, system savvy workers in fields schools have not typically addressed. Maintenance technicians need to understand networking, operators need to read data analysis reports, specialists need to be multi-disciplinary specialists.
Intelitek and our industry partners are stepping up to deliver state-of-the-art training solutions for Industry 4.0. By augmenting skills training, introducing new areas of study specific to Industry 4.0 and integrating these into comprehensive programs, schools from high school to post secondary level can introduce advanced industry 4.0 training with industry certifications.
