An industrial revolution is in the making, equivalent some say to the introduction of steam power at the tail end of the 18th century. Known as smart manufacturing, Industry 4.0 (after the German initiative Industrie 4.0), the industrial internet of things (IIoT), or simply the fourth industrial revolution, the movement will radically change how manufacturing is done. Greater connectivity and information sharing — enabled by new capabilities in data analytics, remote monitoring and mobility — will lead to increased efficiency and reduced costs. There will be a paradigm shift from “centralized” to “decentralized” production. Semiconductor manufacturing has long been thought of as the most advanced manufacturing process in the world, but it’s not clear if long-held beliefs about how proprietary data, such as process recipes, are managed. Industry experts will examine the potential for the semiconductor factory of the future, and discuss potential roadblocks.
