Industry 4.0 Adoption and Implementation in Global Top 50 Manufacturing Companies

Industry 4.0 Technologies Adoption - Guidelines for SMEs



Information Regarding Industry 4.0 Initiatives of Top 50 Manufacturing Companies

Company           Industry                 Revenue (Millions US Dollars) 

1 Mitsui                   Engineering 566,512 Japan

Mining meets Industry 4.0
West Angelas is one of the mines where Mitsui’s joint venture partner Rio Tinto is road-testing the deployment of the latest information technologies to extract minerals with greater safety and diminished environmental impacts.

At Rio Tinto’s Pilbara Operations Center, located in Perth (around 1,500 kilometers from the Pilbara itself), over 400 operators use real-time analytics and collaboration tools to optimize operations across Rio Tinto’s 17 mines, 4 ports and 1,700 kilometers of railway. Further innovative efforts include autonomous drilling systems (successfully trialed in West Angelas in 2008); autonomous haulage trucks for moving ore (also first trialed in West Angelas in 2008); and fully automated heavy-haul, long-distance railway systems (a world first).

Production is becoming smart. Industry 4.0 and the networked factory

The future has long been here: The digital transformation is changing the products as well as their production. Module for module, Mercedes-Benz is networking the entire automotive value chain – from design, through production, to sales and service. The fourth industrial revolution is accelerating more and more. The foundations for a completely connected “smart factory” are set.
