© 2020, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.In Industrial Revolution 4.0 applications the production is increasingly digitized. Moreover, component-driven production is supported. Machines used in production systems exchange very big amounts of process data with one another. The most impressive part is the big amounts of data which can be analyzed for production improvements. Of course, die casting industry has faced these challenges very close. Because each component of an integrated manufacturing system of die casting process requires managing the big data. According to the Industry 4.0, it is possible to adapt various tools and concepts to the manufacturing system with the help of modern information technology and the machine flexibilization. If users can access the process data easily the material flow can be analyzed and optimization along the process can be done. Although there are some challenges in applications, practical potentials of the tools of Industrial Revolution 4.0 especially in die casting production systems offers many advantages especially in management of big data for process improvements.
