Industry 4.0 (Enterprise 4.0)

Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0, also known as the fourth industrial revolution, is closely linked to digitization. Here production is combined with “smart” communication technology.

In Industry 4.0, intelligent, learning and self-organizing systems are networking digitally and controlling an increasingly autonomous production. In Industry 4.0, people, machines, systems, logistics and products communicate and work directly with one another. That makes production processes more efficient and transparent.

The next step, the networking of the various companies involved, makes it possible to optimize the entire chain of economic added value. This also includes the integration of Logistics 4.0 in the course of material procurement, which is an essential part of Industry 4.0.

TIS GmbH sees itself as a telematics pioneer in mobile data communication and has been developing software for logistics for over 30 years. The latest product generation of logistics software, TISLOG Logistics & Mobility, is closely based on the standards that are being developed for Industry 4.0 and Logistics 4.0.
