Companies adopting Industrie 4.0 will be able to generate superior products and services by responding to identifiable customer desires and current market conditions. We will see supply chain eco-systems established around “Common Industrial Data Platforms” where participants will intentionally share design, production, operational and market data. However, these Data Platforms will be far more than just a means of gathering and sharing data, they will become the very essence of collaborative working. They will be the catalyst to exploit the “positive externalities” created by such enterprise partnerships. Just as observed with Multi-Sided Markets in the B2C world, Common Industrial Data Platforms will drive network effects in the B2B world.
Industry 4.0 creates what has been called a “smart factory”. Within the modular structured smart factories, cyber-physical systems monitor physical processes, create a virtual copy of the physical world and make decentralized decisions. Over the Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems communicate and cooperate with each other and with humans in real time, and via the Internet of Services, both internal and cross- organizational services are offered and used by participants of the value chain.
