The implementation of industry 4.0: A literature review

Authors
Simas, O; Rodrigues, JC;

Publication
Proceedings of International Conference on Computers and Industrial Engineering, CIE

Abstract
This works intends to be a reduced, but complete literature review about the role of the implementation process in the new technological paradigm for manufacturing, called "Industry 4.0". This is a very recent subject that already generated a wide range of literature and discussion, although it had not yet been studied in-depth, making the term "industry 4.0" and its related concepts blurrier than concrete. The expression "implementation of industry 4.0" is too wide, since it is the result of the implementation of "industry 4.0" technologies and not the paradigm per se. The main objective of this work is to study what is known until now about the implementation of "industry 4.0". With that objective, this paper starts by presenting a definition of what is "industry 4.0" and contextualizing it in today's manufacturing environment. Then some preconditions that are required for the implementation of "industry 4.0" are presented, followed by the specificities that some particular technologies have.

Implementing cyber-physical systems in manufacturing

Authors

Publication
Proceedings of International Conference on Computers and Industrial Engineering, CIE

Abstract
Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are a new generation of systems that integrate computation and physical processes interacting with humans in different ways. Integrated networks of computers, sensors and similar technologies monitor and control the physical processes, reporting relevant data to planners and decision-makers, and vice versa. By means of case research, this paper analyzes the implementation of cyber-physical systems aiming at lead-time reduction in two manufacturing contexts, namely footwear and natural cork stoppers. The results of this research contribute to literature and practice with a conceptual framework for the implementation of cyber-physical systems and the discussion of the challenges of implementing this technology.

FOREST ECOLOGY AND MANAGEMENT

Abstract
Wildfire management has been struggling in recent years with escalating devastation, expenditures, and complexity. Given the copious factors involved and the complexity of their interactions, uncertainty in the outcomes is a prominent feature of wildfire management strategies, at both policy and operational levels. Improvements in risk handling and in risk-based decision support tools have therefore a key role in addressing these challenges. In this paper, we review key systems created to support wildfire management decision-making at different levels and scales, and describe their evolution from an initial focus on landscape-level fire growth simulation and burn probability assessment, to the incorporation of exposure and economic loss potential (allowing the translation of ignition likelihood, fire environment terrain, fuels, and weather and suppression efficacy into potential fire effects), the integration with forest management and planning, and more recently, to developments in the assessment of values at risk, including real-time assessment. This evolution is linked to a progressive widening of the scope of usage of these systems, from an initial more limited application to risk assessment, to the subsequent inclusion of functionality enabling their Utilization in the context of risk management, and more recently, to their explicit casting in the broader societal context of risks and decisions, from a risk governance perspective. This joint evolution can be seen as the result of a simultaneous pull from methodological progresses in risk handling, and push from technological progress in wildfire management decision support tool, as well as more broadly in computational power. We identify the key benefits and challenges in the development and adoption of these systems, as well as future plausible research trends.

Abstract
As a preventive mode of care is rising in the healthcare industry, new networks of health organizations are also emerging. Technology has the potential to play a major role in enabling these networks and their activities. We propose a conceptual framework to analyze implementations of technological innovations in interorganizational networks, integrating context, technology and network factors, with interorganizational learning, and management practices and implementation strategies. A preliminary pilot case study supports a significant part of the framework, and suggests the relevance of management practices and implementation strategies for successful implementations.
