History has seen three industrial revolutions: mechanization of production, assembly lines for production, and automation of production. However, society is facing a fourth revolution, the digitization of production or Industry 4.0. The new revolution spawned from companies necessitating a new form of production to meet increased customer demands. This research will develop a concept relationship map (CRM) for Industry 4.0 that offers a visual depiction of the connection between the main pillars of Industry 4.0. The implementation of Industry 4.0 will be further envisioned through the simulation of a modern manufacturing floor in RoboDK® software. This visual representation explains the abstract Industry 4.0 in a more concrete way.
