Quotation Taudes, Alfred. 2017. Operations Management 4.0. The 7th International Symposium on Operations Management and Strategy 2017 (ISOMS 2017), Toyko, Japan, 07.07-11.07. Invited Talk




This talk will consider how the diffusion of Industrie 4.0 will affect Operations Management practices in manufacturing companies. We will start out with the origins and current status of Industrie 4.0 in German speaking countries. We will then present the technological innovations summarized under the slogan Industrie 4.0. by introducing the Industrie 4.0 pilot factory in Vienna, Seestadt. This “toy factory” employs the latest hard- and software technologies to produce 3D printers for teaching, research and training purposes. For this prototypical Industrie 4,.0 production system, we identify key issues for operations management in an environment characterized by sensing machines, products and storage/transportation equipment, robots, 3D printers, body attached sensors, shopfloor WLANs and In-Memory ERP systems. On this basis we then can assess operations management models and methods with regard to their relevance in Industrie 4.0 environments and discuss new challenges. Finally we will talk about the impact of our findings for education and research in Operations Management.
