Abstract

The demand for shorter delivery time, more efficient and automated processes, higher quality and customized products have driven companies towards the fourth industrial revolution. This study aims to contribute to the state of the art by evaluating the main application fields of Industry 4.0 and analyzing the enabling technologies used in these fields. To this end, a bibliographic analysis for Industry 4.0 was first conducted by searching relevant papers with the support of the Scopus database (www.scopus.com). Then, an overview on Industry 4.0 was performed with the purpose to deeply understand the context of this study. Finally, the attention moved on the identification of the enabling technologies and the main application areas of Industry 4.0. These latter, as they emerged from the literature, appear to be Logistics 4.0, Automotive, Smart home and Agriculture 4.0.
