A critical cycle for the competitive power of countries should be established in production and service systems. This cycle should involve real-time integration and continuous communication of the entire value chain. With Industry 4.0, advanced technologies such as extensive data analysis, additive manufacturing(3D printers), intelligent sensors, and smart grids need to be integrated into production and service processes. Further, the digitalization of the entire value chain is necessary. In this way, each factor contributing to traditional methods can communicate through the digital ecosystem by enabling increased production speed and process efficiency.
