13. Disaster Management
Since the beginning of the industrial era, it has been necessary to innovate, both in technology and production models. The designation given to this transformation is Industrial Revolution which, besides changes in the industry and the economy, has also brought changes in people's lives. The last of them, the Fourth Industrial Revolution, or Industry 4.0, as it is better known, is still happening today. This means that this process is in progress and that, despite the expectations of success of its application, it is still susceptible to changes. In the current world context, a crisis has brought serious problems to all areas of life, with a significant impact on the industrial age. Within this scenario, this work aims to study and analyze how the 4.0 tools and methods can help in the struggle against the COVID-19 pandemic through a systematic review of the literature. The results showed that the nine technological pillars of Industry 4.0 have been used to combat the pandemic, mainly in the healthcare and public health areas. The improvements and difficulties were divided into categories in order to assist the identification of specific work for specific project goals for academics and professionals.
