Abstract: The tendency to deindustrialization of European countries and the consequent risk of losing high value activities caused the German government to react, presenting the proposal "Industry 4.0". This initiative wants to take advantage of a renewed technological framework in which different technologies (among others, robotics, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, the Internet of Things, big data, additive manufacturing and augmented reality) converge to raise again competitive manufacturing in countries with a long industrial tradition. Thus, the industry, and especially the manufacturing industry, is experiencing an acceleration in its automation process, adding a layer of digitalization on the physical reality. At the end of the process, it is expected to achieve a highly efficient production environment, where human resources will be needed in a considerably smaller number than today, and with a professional profile and required skills that are very different from those currently needed.
