Intelligent production is the future of industrial production. It is the leading way to a new industrial era and it best defines the concept of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Getting the real-time data on quality, resources and costs it provides significant advantages over classical production systems. Intelligent production must be built on sustainable and service-oriented technological and business practices. They are characterized by flexibility, adaptability and self-learning, resilience

The high levels of automation, on the other hand, become a mandatory standard for them, which is possible thanks to a flexible network of production-based systems that automatically monitor the production processes. Flexible systems and models that are capable of responding in real time allow internal processes to be radically optimized. Production benefits are not limited to one-off production conditions, and the capabilities include optimization through a global network of adaptive and self-regulating manufacturing components belonging to more than one operator.
