Why do We Need the Concept of Industry 4.0?

Has anyone left the concept of Industry 4.0?

First of all, we have to deal with the history of industry. Let's take a look at the periods of industrial history.

Industrial history started with the power of water and steam. It has emerged with mechanical production systems using water and steam power. It is possible to give an example to the production systems in England between 1750 and 1830. With the second industrial revolution (2.0), it was introduced as mass production with the help of electric power. It would not be wrong to give examples of the inventions of Telegraph in 1840 and Telephone in 1880. In the third industrial revolution (3.0), that is now the digital revolution, the use of electronics and the development of information technology has further automated production. Examples include the introduction of the first microcomputer (Altair 8800) by Ed Roberts in 1971, and the establishment of Apple, the phone brand of most of us, in 1976 by Steve Jobs and S. Wozniak.

Now we have reached the period of Industry 4.0. First of all, if we need to make a general definition, Industry 4.0 is a term that includes many contemporary automation systems, data exchanges and production technologies.

Why do we need the concept of Industry 4.0?

The fact that there is a great threat coming from the East creates this need. In other words, China, the world's largest population and the sixth largest economy, affects the global economy to a great extent. This process represents the opportunity for China and the developing countries in China's region, but is considered a threat to the rest of the world. The German government, which was first aware of this, formed its team in 2012 and in 2013, it tells the world that it will bring their industries from 3.0 to 4.0 in twenty years and presents the roadmap. In the face of this threat and after the attack of Germany, Western countries start to work on the subject and concentrate on three issues.

Speed: The best gain for the product is shortening the time to market, the concept of innovation coming into contact with the products, the ability to produce smaller quantities; In other words, adapting to the concept of speed is one of the first issues.

Flexibility: What was the main reason for the threat in Eastern countries? Thanks to its overpopulation and production, it has brought out price competition by offering low-cost products. It means that if flexible lines are installed, it will not have to stop production and personal expectations will be eliminated and it will provide continuous production by reducing muscle strength.

Productivity: What do they think of productivity? They are calculating if I have the capacity to produce more cheaply and more than China. We could say why they have waited for such a threat so far and have not thought about it. Technology was not so developed, the digital age had not become so much a part of our lives.

Looking at these issues, we can say that in order to understand the fundamentals of Industry 4.0 in general, Industry 4.0 pulls people (muscle strength) out of the system and makes the system perfect and the margin of error decreases to zero. Both efficiency and cost are reduced

Will there be unemployment?

If you switch from a system that works with muscle power to production, employment will increase by 6%. How Does? When this system is switched to a 3 percent share due to the increased industry is provided here. The other 3 percent share is changing jobs and emerging professions to keep up with the latest digital age.

In fact, on the one hand, the social goal is not to aim at the production of muscle power, but to support the brain's ability to demonstrate, think innovative and develop.

What is happening in the world?

If we go back to Germany, do you see people in the photo you saw? The company operates a system that operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and produces 1 million products per month.

The human contribution to production is calculated to be 25%, reducing the muscle strength to less or even zero and decreasing the error rate to a level of 12 in a million means perfect system

Turkey what the situation?

For the implementation of one of Turkey's 2023 targets must take place among the world's top 10 economies. This means that it has to grow at an average rate of 8.5 percent per year. This growth cannot be possible without using IT efficiently. In our country, giving higher weight to information education and training programmers and programmers have the potential to get closer to the targets

What Industry 4.0 as FSSoftware means to us?
