Foreseeing changes in the way companies manufacture products and provide services, future trends are emerging in design and manufacture. Together with growing internet applications and technologies connected through the cloud, a new Industrial Revolution, named “Industry 4.0”, aims to integrate cyber-virtual and cyber-physical systems to aid smart manufacturing, as presented in this paper. Connecting information and physical machinery, this new paradigm relies on how effective and fast connectivity are achieved for Industry 4.0. A new generation of wireless connection, 5G, will help and accelerate this trend. Following analysis of the present cyber-physical integration for the 4th Industrial Revolution, this paper also investigates future methodologies and trends in smart manufacturing, design and innovation.
