CoET & INDUSTRY 4.0
     

What is Industry 4.0?

Industry 4.0 is a name for the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies. It includes cyber-physical systems, the Internet of things, cloud computing and cognitive computing. Industry 4.0 creates what has been called a "smart factory". Within the modular structured smart factories, cyber-physical systems monitor physical processes, create a virtual copy of the physical world and make decentralized decisions. Over the Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems communicate and cooperate with each other and with humans in real time, and via the Internet of Services, both internal and cross-organizational services are offered and used by participants of the value chain.

 

Based on research conducted by PwC, Industry 4.0 sees a promising future in the digitization of products and services and means of robotic manufacturing and engineering – companies expect to reduce operational costs by 3.6% per annum while increasing efficiency by 4.1% annually – over the course of five years.

 

How Industry 4.0 Helps Towards Nation Building?

The investment in proper education and training institutes to cultivate more skill-based workers rather than depending solely on foreign labor. Besides lowering unemployment rates among Malaysians, this fourth wave of industrial revolution will help equip the younger generation to take on the future-ready workforce in the years ahead.

The adoption of this system would allow for the control of capital flow out of the country through the limitations of unskilled foreign workforce – engendering and shifting towards a knowledge-based economy.

Initiation of the necessary policies and support that is garnered through Malaysian policy makers and the implementation of technological advancements will further incites the development of Industry 4.0 in Malaysia.
