Abstract: Industry 4.0, known as “Internet of things”, is a term related to high technology and innovation. After essential industrial revolutions occurring at industry sector, countries have had to accommodate themselves to global changes and make new policies in order to keep the persistence of their competitive power under the condition of increasing competition. With Industry 4.0, as the latest of these new policies, which came to spotlight around 2011, it’s aimed to reduce production time, cost, and energy required for production while increasing the amount of production and quality. Industry 4.0, which first has emerged in Germany, has become a strategic issue being spoken and studied in many countries of the world including Turkey over time.←10 | 11→

The manufacturing sector has emerged as a key sector of economic growth and development, especially during the aftermath of 2008 economic crisis and beyond. Within the Industry 4.0, which points out to a process in which objects are pretty much able to be produced at the optimal level by coordinating each other independent of humans, the importance of the manufacturing sector in the economy has been increasing over time. In this framework, the structural transformation appropriate to the innovations brought by the manufacturing sector in Industry 4.0 has a critical prescription in terms of increasing the competitive power of the countries. In order for this transformation to take place, scholars, researchers, and policymakers need to work on comprehensive and feasible development programs. Structuring policies provide positive contributions to economic growth when the right tools are selected and applied in line with the needs of the country. In this study, it has been aimed to discuss the new policies to be implemented regarding the restructuring of the manufacturing sector according to Industry 4.0.

Keywords: Industry 4.0, New Manufacturing Methods, New Production Methods.

JEL Codes: O11, O14.

1Introduction

In order to understand what Industry 4.0 is, why it emerges, and what it will change in the future, it is necessary to investigate what stages the industry has gone through so far. The 1st Industrial Revolution was a concept that emerged in the 1760s. The reason for its being called the Revolution is the abandonment of the production structure based on hand and body power at that time and the transition to machine-based production. In this new system, which allows steam generation–based production, the number and quality of products have ←11 | 12→ increased over time. The 1st Industrial Revolution started and developed in England and spread over time in Europe and the U.S. With the possibilities provided by the industrial revolution, serial production has increased in connection with the needs of marketing and new raw materials produced by these countries, and the connection with the Middle East and Far East countries has increased and the industrial revolution has become a global concept (EBSO, 2015, 4).
