Industry 4.0 is not only just a new sector of economy—it is a new technological model of economic development, which will determine the technical possibilities, organizational philosophies, and approaches to managing socio-economic systems in the near future. Signs of the Fourth Industrial Revolution can already be seen in the most progressive developed and developing countries.
However, despite the high interest of entrepreneurs in the possibilities that are provided by Industry 4.0, large-scale investment projects and the adoption of state and national strategies and programs to facilitate the financing and transition to Industry 4.0, the Fourth Industrial Revolution is developing very slowly. The reason for this is the non-systemic character of the implemented initiatives.
A comprehensive study of Industry 4.0 from various spheres of scientific knowledge allows for the development of meta-scientific concepts.
