During an interview with Bref Eco, the director of MGA Technologies, Hervé de Malliard gave the following statement introducing the industry 4.0: “The industry has experienced the steam engine, electricity, then the automation revolution … What changes today with the industry of the future is that in addition to modern technological needs, there is also a software dimension that brings intelligence to machines which gives them the ability to learn, improve themselves and communicate with each other.” He added, “Our customers that were earliest to become automated are the ones who are doing the best.”
