Maritime vessels are complex systems that generate and require the utilization of large amounts of data for maximum efficiency. The successful utilization of sensors and IoT in the industry requires a forward-thinking approach to leverage the benefits of Industry 4.0 in a more comprehensive manner. While processes and manufacturing processes can be improved and advanced through such efforts, in order the industry to be able to benefit from data generation, integrated approaches are necessary. In order to develop truly value-added vessels, we introduce a descriptive approach for understanding Maritime 4.0.
