Review by Exception: the ultimate Laboratory 4.0 objective

In a previous article, we described the evolution of the laboratories along the four industrial revolutions, in which the last one gets the machines, devices, sensors, and people connecting, communicating and driving effective production. The principles of the fourth revolution are interconnection, transparency of the information, technical assistance, decentralized decisions. Technicians and analysts have the ability to connect and communicate with their analytical instruments, devices, and sensors. Capture of the data is automatic, controlled and compliant towards data integrity requirements. Read More...
