Tools and techniques for implementing Industry 4.0 and Industry 5.0

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Since its initiation about 10 years ago, Industry 4.0 has established itself as a powerful concept to increase the competitiveness and attractivity of companies. Many lessons have been learned and a set of best practice tools and techniques have since evolved for implementing Industry 4.0. This chapter introduces the fundamentally different mindset that distinguishes Industry 4.0 design thinking from its predecessors. Industry 4.0 builds on a set of enabling technologies that need to be chosen wisely to boost a business's productivity and efficiency. This chapter introduces for the first time the 4-pillars model and the 6C trust pyramid as fundamental techniques that can be used to both create as well as test new designs concepts. The chapter ends with a view on requirements for human-centric Industry 5.0 implementation.
