Digitization and intelligentization of manufacturing process is the need for today’s industry. The manufacturing industries are currently changing from mass production to customized production. Industry 4.0 is bringing a new level of automation to manufacturing by allowing machines’ processes to be reprogrammed with minimal input from humans. The Cloud is the fuel for Industrie 4.0 and the key element that makes it possible to develop a production strategy that is innovative, more effective and efficient by leveraging sensors, artificial intelligence and robotics. The objective of this article is to provide an overview of Industry 4.0 and how cloud opens the gateway for Industry 4.0 with its applications.
