Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 refers to a concept whose goal is a largely self-organized production based on digitally networked systems. Cyber-physical systems are able to make independent decisions and perform tasks autonomously. This leads to more efficient decision-making and faster resolution of production-related problems.
For example, the state of the machines can be monitored in real time by means of the so-called predictive maintenance technique. In that way, the next maintenance date can be calculated which avoids unexpected machine failures resulting in massive cost savings.
Machine networking is integrated into all phases of the product life cycle and therefore leads to an optimization of the entire value chain. As part of the Q-West cooperation project, the Microelectronics and Implantable Systems Group is providing 20 companies with extensive knowledge in the area of Industry 4.0 in cooperation with FH Salzburg and FH Vorarlberg.
