Industry4.0 is an ideal state of efficiency, but is tough to get implemented in the near future, few challenges that I foresee;
1. IT security issues. The previously closed system will need to open up to vulnerabilities of the Internet. We need a secured and #Insured system to safeguard USPs
2. Stability and uniformity in machine to machine integration with least latency – A common protocol and platform need to be developed i. e an ecosystem
3. Consent. If we are deploying 4.0 for the public domain, consent for each sequence and machines will be tough. The essence of 4.0 is a smooth flow of information
4. Management reluctance to do something new which could suddenly go out of control in case of any glitch
6. Fear of “loss” /changed dynamics of Job
7. Lack of adequate skill sets
8. High investment in resources
9. Proper understanding & implementation of Content and Context
10. IoT & Internet of Values (IoV) will change business models
11..Please add more
A company who is creating an ecosystem with different tools will get benefitted from industry 4.0 like Amazon Google, as they can take benefits of shared infrastructure and customers.
