Industry 4.0 in many countries related to advanced manufacturing is becoming important. It seems that German government is willing to maintain the high-tech leadership in the new revolutionary stage securing solid technology platform. Many countries recognize that Industry 4.0 developed by Germany is the promising platform with core technologies for the new era, namely 4th Industrial Revolution. It makes sense since Germany is most competitive than any other country in manufacturing industry. However, it is true that it has been challenged severely by followers. In this regard, German government has prepared to deal with the difficulties and rapid changes of the industry. The first key initiative in Industry 4.0 is to integrate interconnected factory systems and Internet of Things (IoT). Cyber-physical systems (CPS) also play a role of major enabler in the integrated environment. There are many variables to prepare advanced manufacturing due to each country’s own policy and industry environment. This paper addresses how Industry 4.0 will be implemented for advanced manufacturing enabling smart factories, as well as the role of related technologies and implications for its future perspective.
