Industry 4.0 is changing the manufacturing environment with its cyber-physical infrastructure to support and help increase production performance. The cyber-physical infrastructure brings new technologies such as Internet of Things, big data, cloud computing, and machine learning using advanced algorithms. To deal with this new order to preserve asset performance, industrial maintenance needs to be prepared. This study aims to understand the impact of Industry 4.0 on the skills required within industrial maintenance departments. A survey of industrial maintenance professionals finds that the majority of training comes from internal sources and that much of the information systems used for training are out-of-date or does not exist. The results of this study show that Industry 4.0 will impact the maintenance department and that a Change Management process should be put in place to accomplish this transition smoothly.
