The typical features of Industry 4.0 are fully automated production, in which the management of all processes is carried out in real time and taking into account changing external conditions. Cyber-physical systems create virtual copies of objects of the physical world, control physical processes and take decentralized decisions. They are able to integrate into one network, interact in real time, self-adjust and self-learn. An important role is played by Internet technologies that provide communication between staff and machines. Enterprises produce products in accordance with the requirements of the individual customer, optimizing the cost of production.
