Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0

Overview.

The world finds itself in the fourth industrial revolution, an ongoing process of transformation where traditional manufacturing and industries are becoming ‘smarter’ and more efficient through both hardware and software-based technology. 

These solutions possess the potential to increase business growth by helping organizations become more energy-efficient, environmentally friendly, safer, less dependent on manual labor, and at the same time reducing the production of material waste and number of malfunctions. 

Among our clients

focus areas.

At SOSA we continuously cover and develop our expertise in the following areas as part of our ongoing partnerships with our corporate clients.  


01
IoT and Industrial Big Data

As sensors are turning industrial sites into connected spaces, huge amounts of collected data now provide better visibility into the business through big data analytics. The efficiency of Industrial IoT (IIoT) facilities is enhanced via process automation, predictive maintenance, and additive manufacturing.

02
Supply Chain Efficiency

Next level administration of logistics starts with smart platforms for inventory management and continues through automated fulfillment centers, followed by tools that digitize and allow a scale-ready last-mile operation.

03
Robotics and Automation

Combining robotic units with sensors and self-learning capabilities enables autonomous operations, increasing overall efficiency and making industrial sites much safer workplaces.

04
Industrial Cyber Security

New and unexpected cyber risks are emerging as previously non-connected devices are going online, resulting in new challenges and opportunities. SOSA's positioning in Israel, a country with unparalleled capacity to generate cybersecurity innovations, allows us to identify unique solutions for IT/OT networks for industrial operations of all shapes and sizes.

05
Energy and Sustainability

Our expertise in energy related solutions focuses on new methods for energy harvesting and storage, from renewable and non-renewable sources (PV hydro and air). Smart grid enablement and energy management both contribute to making each business sustainable, going hand in hand with air quality monitoring, water treatment and additional solutions for a circular economy.

Insights

While the fourth industrial revolution has been underway for years, it was abruptly accelerated as COVID-19 was declared a global pandemic in March 2020. The challenges and obstacles this crisis created for manufacturing environments, assembly lines, and supply chains called for the implementation of technology in a much quicker manner, no matter what the current state of an organization’s technological maturity was. Almost instantly, the focus of supply chain management became crisis management, and this became a major catalyst for digitization and automation.



We’ve seen an increase in the

implementation of technologies

in three main areas:
01

The substantial adoption of robotics and autonomous operations for warehouses and distribution centers and for order and inventory fulfillment. This is critical for the “lights out” scenario that happened during COVID-19, and also for operational efficiency and worker safety.

02

AI, advanced analytics and IOT in supply chain have been used in operations before, but the crisis put a spotlight on the need for these technologies to truly optimize supply chains. The ability to analyze massive quantities of historical data and collect real-time data will be crucial to efficiently optimize decision making, and substantially reduce costs and errors.

03

COVID 19 has put a strain on last mile delivery. Many retailers and consumer businesses had to start home deliveries overnight. This, together with the shift in consumer behavior; for example, pushing back on long waiting times, and the need for contactless deliveries has brought technology front and center in the past few months. These changes will play a huge role in the future of last mile delivery.
