With Industry 3.0, machines were designed to work autonomously. However, with the combination of IoT and Industry 4.0, the aim is to connect machines, work pieces, and systems in a network that allows them to communicate and become an intelligent system, where individual units can influence each other to automatically maximize throughput and quality. In the past, connecting and establishing communication between industrial automation devices and equipment was difficult. IMS research estimates that 85% of legacy devices still lack this ability. The primary reason is the lack of compatibility between equipment produced by different manufacturers. While manufacturers competed to have factories use only their equipment, factory owners faced the challenge of connecting multiple devices together and enabling cross-device communication. This lack of compatible standards and programming languages meant that gathering all data into a single program was extremely difficult and expensive. However, now, because of technological advancements and reduced price points, cross-device communication can finally be realized.
