The transition from ISA-95 to RAMI4.0/IIRA based automation for production automation in Industry 4.0 is ongoing. This includes the integration of legacy OT with emerging IT technologies. Another aspect is automation/digitalisation across value networks involving a multitude of stakeholder in complex relationships.

The formation of such large to very large System of Systems (SoS) are foreseen. Such SoS will involve technologies like e.g. Smart IoT, AI, Analytics, Big data, 5G Semantic Web, Security, Ontologies and legacy technology. This technology will be distributed across multiple stakeholders with complex relationships. All in all aiming for efficient production of products or services.

Architectures like RAMI4.0 and IIRA have been presented but are still in early stages. Implementation platforms and frameworks are as well in early stage. Even less maturity is seen regarding engineering and management of such complex automation and digitalisation solution.

To become successful, in real world production of goods and service, technology and stakeholder integration will need theory, architectures, management frameworks, security and experience knowledge related to management of such very large SoS. Thus theory, architectures, management frameworks and experience knowledge related to management of goods and service production is the focus of this proposed workshop.

Hence, this WS will focus on a number of core engineering and management issues for Industry 4.0, associated theory, architectures, frameworks, security and experimental experience. The primary topics are:

  • Migration management
  • Security management
  • Automation evolution management and engineering
  • Product Life Cycle Management
  • Product Planning Management
  • Manufacturing Change Management
  • Manufacturing Execution Management

Additional topic may be considered given adequate arguments, therefore.

Important Dates:

  • Manuscript submission Jan 20, 2020.
  • Information on acceptance/rejection Jan 31, 2020.
  • Final paper submission: March 1, 2020.
  • Registration deadline March 1, 2020.
