46 SMT007 MAGAZINE I MARCH 2020 The level three and level four manufac- turing-management systems of Industry 4.0 require a huge amount of data, which can only be generated and made useful in level two. A systematic approach allows manufacturers to progress realistically. In the earlier levels, you learn more about data systems in general and the data needed for your specific processes. You begin to amass the datasets necessary to enable the system to identify and execute pro- duction-process improvements based on data. With this methodical approach, manufactur- ers can implement digital transformation more quickly and with less frustration. Throughout every level, process traceability is crucial to maintaining an accurate history of changes that results from smart machine learn- ing and machine-to-machine communication, contributing to the dataset that can lead to a greater understanding of the implications of change.
