4th Workshop on Management for Industry 5.0 (MFI5.0), at

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

Friday 8th - 12th of May 2023 // Miami, USA //


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/digitalization across value networks involving a multitude of stakeholders in complex relationships. This organically leads to the consideration of multiple factors, firstly the human in the loop i.e. industry 5.0, and therefore dependencies like privacy, security and connectivity. Consequently, Management for Industry 5.0 covers three thematic themes: (1) connectivity, infrastructure, and security, (2) cyber-physical systems/system-of-systems, and (3) the human in the loop.

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 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. Consequently, other fields like agriculture or logistics can benefit from the same strategies applied to industry 5.0 if not already seen as part of I5.0. Requirements such as privacy, dependability, or trustworthiness are key enablers of service- and data-driven automation, also and to some extent specifically in other production domains which facilitate electronic components and systems e.g. digitalization in production of food.

The consideration of previous mentioned aspects allows the formation of large to very large Systems of Systems (SoS). Such SoS will involve technologies like e.g. IoT, AI, Analytics, Big data and legacy technology. 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 for 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.

Finally, the inclusion of human actors in complex production contexts is crucial for the success and impact of these production systems in the real world. Trust in autonomous systems, acceptance of human-robot collaboration, competence development, training and knowledge management are among the challenges that Management for Industry 5.0 is facing. This includes explainable AI in production contexts and workplace integrated learning in the smart factory.
