Industry 4.0 has no universally accepted definition, but this term is commonly understood as the use of cutting-edge technologies in production and minimizing human involvement in the process. Industry 4.0 promotes the concept of so-called Smart Enterprise.
This enterprise uses a modular structure, where cyberphysical systems control physical processes by creating a virtual copy of the real world and make decentralized decisions.
These systems can also be united into a single network, interact in real time, self-customize and self-learn.
The transition of production to Industry 4.0 is referred to as digital transformation.
