SYNOPSIS

In the 1700s, the first Industrial Revolution saw the use of steam and water power as well as mechanization. In the late 1800s, the second Industrial Revolution saw assembly lines and mass production as well as electricity. In the 1980s, the third Industrial Revolution saw computers and automation coming into play.

Now we have Industry 4.0 and many people ask how it will affect process engineering and manufacturing. Artificial intelligence is growing and data is set to drive the economy. Productivity and quality is improved through smart manufacturing and reducing risks. That includes connectivity, Big Data and analytics.

How do we thrive in this digital world that is moving at an exponential rate? How do we prepare ourselves? What comes next? As the title of the paper suggests it is a continuum and not limited to ‘industry’. The author will try to put all these into perspective. He will provide examples of what is possible in the palm oil industry as it has the whole spectrum of technological progress.

He concludes by sharing how cognitive computing, using exponentially more data from increasingly connected plants, make process plants more efficient and safer than ever whilst adding increasing value to the industry.
