Until the first half of the 20th century, industrial organizations relied primarily on the human factor to control and monitor their processes. However, with increasingly complex operations and ever-larger factories, in the 1970s, digital PLCs (programmable logic controllers) and computers became famous as an interface for data transmission to remote control centers. Soon later, the «telemetry» was born, from the Greek «metria» (measurement) and «tele» (remote), and with it, a control system the SCADA: Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition Systems. It is called the third industrial revolution, and today, there is no industrial company that does not have PLCs or SCADAs in its operation.
Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) allow today to witness another great technological leap that many dare to call the fourth industrial revolution.
The scope goes far beyond «data acquisition and monitoring.» It focuses on the advanced processing of large volumes of data that allows faster and more efficient decision-making processes and less risk and margin for error. However, we are still in the process of consolidating this new revolution, as the limits between the investment made in the third industrial revolution and the one needed for the fourth one are not yet clear.
In this article, we give three keys to the roadmap that must be followed by any company that doesn’t want to be left out of the fourth industrial revolution.
