We currently live in a challenging scenario, which begins a major process of change in human, business and political relationships. Resource management is an essential factor and the use of technology has become a strategic ally for the survival of organizations. Research indicates that about 70% of the Brazilian population has access to the internet, a volume above the global average, which is 57%. It is estimated that this tree of technologies will completely change the way of living in society, since the essence of digital transformation is not new and has been applied for some time.


Before the pandemic, Industry 4.0 awoke with initiatives and projects in Brazil. FIESP, in partnership with SENAI, carried out in 2018 a survey on the advancement of the Fourth Industrial Revolution in the country. The survey indicated that 90% of companies agree that Industry 4.0 will increase productivity and that it is an opportunity rather than a risk. In addition, the survey results also indicated that 30% of companies have already started the process and 25% are planning it.


With the COVID-19 pandemic, the importance of digital transformation takes on gigantic proportions, especially in the industrial sphere. Applying the concept of Industry 4.0, we moved from mass production to producing quantity on demand, without stockpiling. Industry and logistics are connected, focusing on product customization and cost reduction.


And how to plan this transformation from traditional to 4.0?


One of the characteristics of Industry 4.0 is cyber-physical systems, which combine physical and virtual production infrastructure. The possibility of advancing in the virtual world comes with the IoT (Internet-of-Things), in which the connectivity of smart devices creates competitive advantage and intertwines the physical with the digital through real-time data generation. O Cloud Computing enables the optimization of costs with infrastructure, data storage and communication, acting as an engine in the transformation of processes and management improvement.


Another use in Industry 4.0 is the Big Data, that is, the decision-making process based on the collection and organization of the large volume of unstructured data in an organization. There are great possibilities to generate value for the business, since bringing visibility with as much information as possible is beneficial for managers. Finally, the Blockchain brings robustness, availability, reliability and compliance to the business.

Logistics, which is equally important in the Industry 4.0 process, is leveraged by the connectivity of technologies, generating faster processes with practices throughout the supply chain, facilitating inventory management and bringing excellence in transport. Through the physical dimensions of the supply chain and the value chain, Logistics 4.0 will leverage businesses to strengthened strategies and new levels of management.


The current moment is transforming the way we live and, consequently, advancing the arrival of Society 5.0, based on the intensive use of technologies. The success of these technologies depends on the use that society makes of them. In this scenario, the company that does not seek ways to expand this knowledge may have difficulties to enter the competitive market.
