$ 1Asiemens.jpgGermany-based Siemens Corporation has overhauled their factories to operate fully on Internet communications. 

Russia Today reports that, "As smartphones have revolutionized personal communication, German industry is looking to smart factories to improve the country’s industrial output. Leading the charge is conglomerate Siemens, and a facility in the small town of Amberg."

The Internet server line would immediately inform factory operators when any malfunctions occur. 

According to RT, "The Siemens factory in Amberg makes automated machines for companies like BASF, Bayer, and BMW. But it’s not the machines, but the way they are made that is revolutionary. The manufacturer is using the internet to link 1,000 production facilities over 9,000 square kilometers, and it’s all centered on the Amberg facility, The Wall Street Journal reports."

Machines could get fixed by other machines.
