Smart Topics. At a Glance.
- Predictive Maintenance: Predictive maintenance is a core component of Industry 4.0 and is used to predict when equipment is due for maintenance.
- Internet of Things (IoT): The Internet of Things is a collection of all the technologies that make it possible to connect devices to each other and to the Internet.
- Industry 4.0: After the first industrial revolution (18th/19th century, use of machines), the second industrial revolution (early 20th century, assembly line and piece work) and the third industrial revolution (mid-20th century, computerization), Industry 4.0 refers to the fourth stage of industrial development towards technologies that enable factories and industries to react quickly, with flexibility, and to some extent autonomously to changing conditions thanks to digitization and the data available.
- Cloud Service/Cloud Computing: In cloud computing, processing power is obtained from an outsourced IT infrastructure via the Internet instead of from local computers and data centers.
- Big Data: The term literally refers to quantities of data that are too large, too complex, too fast moving, or too weakly structured to be analyzed with conventional methods of data processing. Complex algorithms are used to analyze this data; the term has negative connotations from a privacy perspective.
- Digital Transformation: Digital transformation is a feature of Industry 4.0 and describes societal change processes driven by digital technologies.
- System Integration: System integration refers to the integration, expansion, and modification of hardware and software into an IT infrastructure or target application.
- Augmented Reality: Augmented Reality refers to the computer-assisted enhancement of one’s perception of reality, for example by displaying additional information on an image or video.
- Smart Data: “Smart” data refers to datasets that are extracted from larger quantities of data (see Big Data) by algorithms based on specific criteria and which contain useful information.
- Smart Cloud: Cloud services that provide customers information to customers via the Internet on the basis of “smart” data.
