Revolution of Industry 4.0
The First Industrial Revolution
The industrial revolution in Britain came in to introduce machines into production by the end of the 18th century (1740 – 1840). This included going from manual production to the use of steam – powered engines and water as a source of power. This helped agriculture greatly to be more popular. One of industry have a big changes was textile industry and was the first adopt such methods.
The Second Industrial Revolution
Introducing pre-existing systems such as telegraphs and railroads into industries between year 1870 - 1914. The electrification of factories contributed hugely to production rates. The mass production of steel helped introduce railways into the system, which consequently contributed to mass production.
The Third Industrial Revolution
Perhaps the third one is much more familiar to us than the rest as most people living today are familiar with industries leaning on digital technologies in production. It’s a digital revolution which is dated between year 1950 – 1970 change from analog and mechanical systems to digital ones which is huge development in computers and information and communication technology.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution and how it is different from the third
The fourth industrial revolution takes the automation of manufacturing processes to a new level by introducing customized and flexible mass production technologies. This means that machines will operate independently, or cooperate with humans in creating a customer oriented production field that constantly works on maintaining itself. The machine rather becomes an independent entity that is able to collect data, analyse it and advise upon it.
This becomes possible by introducing self-optimization, self-cognition, and self-customization into the industry. The manufactures will be able to communicate with computers rather than operate them.
