Industry 4.0, IIoT and Connected Manufacturing

The greatest benefit seems to be in complex control of the factory. A SCADA system is extremely useful for all of the workers on the production team. The operator has the main overview of the production in real time, the technologist is able to reconfigure the recipes from the office when itÂ's necessary, for maintenance it is important when and why the failures happened and the shift leader can check who is responsible for that.
