Proactive decision making in future production enterprises: the role of big data, internet of things and cyberphysical systems

Session Abstract

Manufacturing enterprises are evolving to better use digital technologies to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their production system. The synergistic combination of such technologies with the value adding operations undertaken by factories (sometimes referred to as Industrie 4.0, other times as cyberphysical production) allows an unprecedented level of visibility and transparency in production. The vast amount of information that is generated as a result of this close connection, if managed, can lead to better than ever decision making for use of limited resources to achieve production goals. In this keynote, the challenges for creating such a framework for proactive decision making are presented with specific attention to the role of big data, the internet of things and cyberphysical interfaces in providing a rich knowledge foundation. Strategies for addressing these challenges are then proposed for large, data-driven enterprises as well as small to medium sized, people-oriented production companies.
