Using the steam machine in textile industry for the first time in the UK at the beginning of the 18th century, would be called as “Industrial Revolution” many decades later. Respectively, second industrial revolution with the invention and utilizing of electricity, then third industrial revolution with the rise of electronics and automation followed this period. And today, we have been facing with the fourth industrial revolution via internet of things, augmented reality, learning machines, etc. One of the key technologies that are improved in this period is virtual commissioning.
