"Machine-to-machine software developer", "Data Scientists" or Human-Machine Interaction Designer" - thanks to Industry 4.0 there are currently many new creative occupations out there. The completely networked, self-thinking factories of the future create completely new professions. Interdisciplinary abilities and especially imagination are requested to know what to do with the new won data of the networked fabric to optimize all processes efficiently.
Companies looking desperately for professionals
Industry 4.0 is at the starting line, but at this point only the surface is being scratched, according to "Handelsblatt". Only 5% of the companies are using all the potentials actively. Collecting data in networked factories - from production machines, sensors and production streets - are the first part. These data need to be analyzed and evaluated for the companies. Exactly these kind of work requires new work qualifications. The "Data Scientist" who works with all the Industry 4.0 data in a company will be very popular in the future. Mathematician and Physicist will take control of the factories in the future - professions who not only know the terms "Big Data" and "Algorithm" but also know how to use them for logical production steps.
