Industry 4.0 era is approaching and has even taken over some industries in Indonesia although most of our industries are still on the way there. With other companies and firms abroad starting to utilize the technology, our Minister of Industry has stated we also have to start welcoming the era to compete. Roadmaps, policies, and strategies has been made for Indonesia industries to start utilizing industry 4.0 technology. Therefore, in a matter of years we will see ourselves working very closely with the technology in many departments in the company. We will see how Internet of Things (IoT) enables us to control production from afar and further optimize logistic processes. We will see how business decisions and our products are made and created strategically with Big Data Analytics.
