India has all the potential to become the next manufacturing hub. The concept of Industry 4.0 revolution is all set to enter the manufacturing society in India through the advancement of IoT, Cyber physical systems, Big data analytics and other related key technologies. On the other side, Industry 4.0 requires a strong base of enterprise asset management for its successful implementation. The traditional knowledge and conventional skill sets do not fit into the scope of Industry 4.0. Altogether, the modern manufacturing system is experiencing a paradigm shift and the academia has to cope with this dynamically changing industrial environment.
