The new social reality caused by COVID-19 is a disruption of society and demands a steep acceleration of the new technical reality. Up until December 2019 the emerging technical reality, including Industry 4.0, was about obtaining a competitive advantage. Now it is about survival. The need for efficiency, cost savings, resiliency, agility, switch and adapt, cyber-physical decisions, and using data requires fully digitized processes and training of people to operate in those new processes. It now requires a change of the mindset. Companies will have to blend defensive tactics with an offensive and innovative strategy. In addition to asking “Why?” they will have to step into unchartered territory and ask, “Why not?”. They will have to switch from proprietary to a collaborative mode of problem-solving.

The emerging technical reality, including Industry 4.0 (the fourth industrial revolution), is based on digitalization, informatization, networking, and collaboration. It thrives on using data for feedback loops to improve production, design, and products. Although too early to have data-based evidence of digitalization as a strategic advantage, the early indicators are that COVID is accelerating the adaption of digital technologies. To some of us, it appears as if we just woke up in the year 2025, having to catch up really fast with everything becoming remote and contactless.

The inspection sector is no different. Non-destructive evaluation (NDE) is one of the largest and most valuable data sources in a product life cycle. Industry 4.0 is making it even more powerful and valuable, in the form we call NDE 4.0.
