Data in the Context of Industry 4.0

Fatma Önay KoçoğluDenizhan Demirkol

Today, every sector, not least industry, has been affected by the development of technology. With the breakthrough development of technology, Industry 4.0 has emerged with the concept of big data. Data is the most important element in the process of creating information. This study aims to deal with the subject of Industry 4.0 which has attracted great interest in the global field in the context of big data. Studies concerning Industry 4.0 and related data are examined in our study through a systematic literature review. Web of Science database and “industry 4.0 and data” keywords were used for our article search. A preliminary evaluation was performed for 20 articles meeting the objective of this study which were selected for detailed examination. When the studies on Industry 4.0 and data are analyzed, we can determine that studies with big data, digitalization, internet of things, digital twin, cyber-physical systems, smart factories and cloud computing are prominent. Moreover, when the countries where the articles were published were analyzed, it was found that China was the most cited and studied country in this field. It is believed that the results of this examination will enlighten people working in this field and direct future studies.
