Workshop Intelligent Digital Architecture, Methods, and Services for Industry 4.0 and Society 5.0 (IDAMS)
The digital transformation of global industries and value chains and the associated need for structured research and standardization has given rise to major global and national initiatives. These initiatives address the potentials and challenges of digitalization. Enterprises and societies currently face crucial challenges, while Industry 4.0 becomes important in the global manufacturing industry all the more. Industry 4.0 offers a range of opportunities for companies to increase the flexibility and efficiency of production processes. The development of new business models can be promoted with digital platforms and architectures for Industry 4.0. Industry 4.0 is dedicated to research for industry and supports the implementation of this vision, especially in manufacturing companies. According to the Japanese government, Society 5.0 is more general and can be defined as a fusion between cyberspace and physical space, addressing economic progress aligned with solving social problems by providing goods and services to meet repeated latent needs regardless of location, age, gender, or language.
Contemporary advances in the field of artificial intelligence have led to a rapidly growing number of intelligent systems that can operate entirely independently of human intervention or enables interactions of unprecedented complexity with humans. Data plays a central role in intelligent digital architecture and allows to automate decisions impacting all stakeholders. The use of artificial intelligence techniques enables autonomous decisions that were previously reserved for humans. Intelligent systems augment processes by creating automated interfaces to human beings and replacing human-decision making by a machine-based one. Intelligent digital architectures support the request, configuration, and fulfillment of services. Digitalization promotes the creation of intelligent systems and services with an intelligent digital architecture. Products based on intelligent digital architectures become aware of their environment, act upon it, are able to interact with human beings, and can change their functionality during their lifetime. Based on intelligent digital architecture products and services have local autonomous and dynamically extensible capabilities by accessing external services. Platforms become feasible by matching the supply and demand of services, resources, and products. Intelligent Digital Architectures also enable and enhance business models by integrating resources and leveraging decision making in unprecedented ways, for instance, by applying Digital Enterprise Architecture Framework such as the Adaptive Integrated Digital Architecture Framework (AIDAF). Public discourse on ‘autonomous’ algorithms which work on ‘passively’ collected data contributes to this view.
The EDOC Workshop – Intelligent Digital Architecture, Methods, and Services for Industry 4.0 and Society 5.0 – covers fundamental and practical aspects to support the digital transformation. This disruptive change interacts with all information processes and systems, which are important business enablers for digital transformation for years. Intelligent digital architectures enable intense interaction with customers and products. The customer is closely integrated with business processes and interacts like a co-worker by using implicit touchpoints, which are provided by mobility and wearable systems and the Internet of Things. In this way, customer experience is fostered with disruptive transformation and continuous improvement.
We are delighted to invite contributions to the EDOC Workshop – Intelligent Digital Architecture, Methods, and Services for Industry 4.0 and Society 5.0. Our aim is to provide a platform for researchers and practitioners to discuss both technological and business aspects in the context of digital architectures, methods, processes, services, products, platforms, and business models. We also investigate how intelligent digital architectures support new ways of value co-creation for Industry 4.0 and Society 5.0.
