This blog briefly records the four industrial revolutions over the last 500 years. How we went from assembly lines to a major transition to digital production worldwide. How Technology is no longer a quality in itself, but quality is the service it provides.
Revolution - the first thing you think of when hearing that word is probably not sensors and robots. You might be thinking of a forcible overthrow of a government or social order, in favor of a new system. It begins small and slowly creates a change in people's consciousness and it rarely happens overnight. The fourth industrial revolution is just that –an all-encompassing change on the horizon, just in a more technological kind of way.
We must go back 500 years, when man transitioned from hand-crafted production methods to machines powered by water and steam. This is what we call The Mechanization revolution. Then, in the 18-1900s came the second industrial revolution, The Industrialization, where we experienced the first factories and assembly lines. Next came the third revolution around 1980s, The Automation, in which robots operate in line with the workers in manufacturing.
