Currently the world is in the era of the 4th Industrial Change (Industry 4.0) which is characterized by the execution of expert system, very computer system, large information, cloud calculation, and electronic advancement that takes place in the exponential velocity that will directly affect to the economic situation, industry, government, and even worldwide national politics.
The Industrial Revolution 4.0 is characterized by a wise automation process that refers to enhanced automation, machine-to-machine as well as human-to-machine communication, expert system (AI), and the growth of lasting digital innovation.
Industrial Revolution 4.0 is also taken an effort to change the process of enhancement by integrating the assembly line (production line) with the globe of cyber, where all manufacturing procedures run online with internet link as the primary assistance.
Road Map to Industrial 4.0 in Hand Oil Market
In Indonesia the application of sector 4.0 is expected to increase efficiency as well as technology, minimize operational prices, and efficiency that resulted in raise the export of residential items. In order to increase the application of Market 4.0, Indonesia has actually created a roadmap for sector 4.0 by developing 5 production fields that will be a leading concern in its growth, consisting of food as well as drink sector, automotive, electronic devices, textiles and chemicals.
The 5 market fields are favored thinking about that they have actually shown their terrific contribution to the national economic growth. For instance, the food and also drink sector, specifically the palm oil market, has a market share with development reaching 9.23% in 2017. On top of that, the industry also came to be the biggest foreign exchange factor from the non-oil market which rose to 34.33% in year 2017.
The magnitude of the contribution of the food and beverage industry market can additionally be seen from the worth of exports reaching 31.7 billion United States dollars in 2017, also having a trade balance excess when compared to the import worth of just US $ 9.6 billion. This figure likewise places the hand oil industry as the biggest foreign exchange contributor to the nation.
In order to raise efficiency and efficiency optimally, the technology supporting the industrial change 4.0 is crucial to apply, consisting of the implementation of Net of Points (IOT), Advance Robotic (AR), Artificial Intelligence (AI) as well as Digitalized Facilities (DI).
The architectural change from the agricultural field to the commercial sector has actually also increased per capita income and also driven Indonesians from agrarian to economic situations that depend on an industry-driven value-added process increased by the advancement of electronic innovation.
In the context of this industrial revolution 4.0, the hand oil industry field needs to quickly clean up, especially in the aspect of digital innovation. This is taking into consideration the proficiency of digital modern technology will certainly be the trick that figures out the competitiveness of Indonesia.
Because if not, then the Indonesian palm oil sector will certainly be increasingly left from various other countries. If we do not improve our capabilities and competitiveness in concern markets, we will certainly not just have the ability to get to the target yet will be overridden by other countries that are much better prepared in the worldwide and residential markets.
Digitalization Age in Palm Oil Sector
As a major gamer in the international hand oil industry, Indonesia requires to clean up soon. Absolute process as well as functional effectiveness is right away carried out especially concerning activities involving several manpower such as area job (infield task) such as crop maintenance, land therapy, fertilizing task, weeding, collecting and also moving fruit to evaluating and sorting. This is due to the fact that in this industry there is oftentimes and expense ineffectiveness.
Digital modern technology has actually helped with a lot of operate in the hand oil sector. Now no longer need to make analytical information gathered from a variety of palm ranches by hand. Reduce as well as other benefits of electronic technology is able to record images or pictures of fresh fruit bunches, in addition to exact location of the yard utilizing a tablet that can access the GPS.
In this way, field managers can not only conveniently track and monitor real-time task in the garden, however they can additionally see on their own the high quality of the palm fruit as well as recognize specifically which areas are experiencing the problem. As well as unbelievably, it does not require their presence on the field.
In addition to the simplicity of moving information from the area to the Excel sheet on the computer system and likewise making records on the top quality of the hand fruit, digitization also facilitates in recording the visibility of employees and also field workers to then refine the information for the functions of compensation and also rewards.
