This paper reviews the applications of Industry 4.0 concepts within the aerospace manufacturing processes. A contextual overview of Robotics, Additive Manufacturing, Augmented Reality, Internet of Things, Simulation and Aircraft Industry is provided. Some applications of Robotics integrated with other Industry 4.0 principles are showed to present the trends of Industry 4.0 principles in different areas of aircraft manufacturing. This paper presents some innovations in aerospace industry related to Industry 4.0 and how its benefits and advantages can be reached dayby-day. Finally, it has been concluded that Industry 4.0 brings gains productivity, quality, costs reduction and increase the competitiveness of any business.
