3rd Workshop on Management for Industry 4.0 (MFI4.0), at

IFIP/IEEE NOMS 2022 - Network Operations and Management 2022 Symposium

Friday 29th of April 2022 // Budapest, Hungary //


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 stakeholders in complex relationships.

The recent developments of communications technology show a strong involvement of wireless communications even on the factory floor. This brings new requirements to integrate wireless and also cellular technology, in particular 5G/6G and their resilience, into both OT and IT communication. Moreover, these technologies open a new class of management with more flexibility and challenge traditional industrial communication concepts including security aspects. All aforementioned communication technologies are key enablers for mobile and flexible largescale systems that encompass the architecture of IoT field devices to the networking of factories in one deployment.

The formation of such large to very large System of Systems (SoS) are foreseen. Such SoS will involve technologies like, e.g., IoT, AI, Analytics, Big data, 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 stages. Even less maturity is seen regarding engineering and management of such complex automation and digitalization solutions, which consider dependencies across all levels of abstraction

Such architectures and above technology will be used to automatically or autonomically control digitalized production infrastructures. Autonomous decisions require trustworthy and reliable data, operations, and decisions. However, trust related to, e.g., industrial AI may mean different things depending on the type of stakeholder it concerns and will also require the consideration of management and organizational aspects

To become successful in real world production of goods and service technology and stakeholder integration will need structured training, engineering, and management.

Further Information:

Hence, this workshop 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
  • Operational Management
  • Security Management
  • Deployment Management
  • Management of Networked Components in Industry 4.0 scenarios
  • Automation evolution Management and Engineering
  • Product Life Cycle Management
  • Product Planning Management
  • Manufacturing Change Management
  • Manufacturing Process Management
  • Manufacturing Operations Management
  • Management of Digital Twins
  • Cyber Physical System of Systems

Additional topic may be considered given adequate arguments, therefore.
