About this book


Explore the current state of the production, processing, and manufacturing industries and discover what it will take to achieve re-industrialization of the former industrial powerhouses that can counterbalance the benefits of cheap labor providers dominating the industrial sector. This book explores the potential for the Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), and Smart Factory technologies to replace the still largely mechanical, people-based systems of offshore locations.

Industry 4.0: The Industrial Internet of Things covers Industry 4.0, a term that encapsulates trends and technologies that could rewrite the rules of manufacturing and production.

  • What are the Industrial Internet and Industrial Internet of Things
  • Which technologies must advance to enable Industry 4.0
  • What is happening today to make that happen
  • What are examples of the implementation of Industry 4.0
  • How to apply some of these case studies
  • What is the potential to take back the lead in manufacturing, and the potential fallout that could result
