"Similar to the Western part, besides hiring and training employees, the companies look for solutions which could reduce the impact of workforce, and robotization, automation and digitization of the services are the key solution. Many companies are undergoing a process of restructuring of the business in order to harmonize their resources and services with Industry 4.0, concept which defines the fourth industrial economic revolution", the analysis shows.

As a whole, Industry 4.0 refers to businesses which have digitized their technologies so that installations and equipment can communicate through the internet, with the help of new technologies.

From communication networks, to robots, 3D printers, control systems and in the future, automated machines, Industry 4.0 will impact significantly the economy, offering a degree without precedent of automation and operational independence.
‘The Romanian economy necessitates significant investments to adopt to new industrial revolutions. Beyond the training of the employees, it is necessary to develop automated services where robots will play a significant role' the analysis says.

A recent study, made at the command of Universal robots, shows that entrepreneurs and managers in Romania started to become aware about the impact of the new technologies in economy, with solutions for automation and robotisation to increase production and drop costs.

"This fourth industrial revolution will bring fundamental changes in the mechanisms of economy and Romania must be prepared. The training of the employees to support new technologies must come first. Economic competitiveness will depend, greatly, on the way in which the companies will adapt to Industry 4.0 including the way in which efficient support mechanisms will develop," stated Lidia Neacsu, representative of the training and consultancy company best Smart Consulting which organized 50 courses co-financed through the Social European Fund through the Operational Programme Human Capital 2014 – 2020.

According to the data of the International Federation for Robotics Romania has, at present, 11 robots for 10,000 industrial workers and it would need at least 10,000 industrial robots.

By comparison, in Poland there are 28 robots/10,000 employees, in Hungary there are 57 robots and the Czech Republic there are 100 robots /10,000 workers. In the US the American industry incorporated over the last 10 years over 130,000 robots.

The project Smart Industry 4.0 organised by Best Smart Consulting was co-financed through the European Social fund through the Operational programme Human Capital 2014 – 2020 and worth 3.52 million lei, out of which 3.23 million lei (95%) through non-refundable financing.
