More than new technical devices: a semiotic look at the digital transformation of industry

The Future of Engineering: Philosophical Foundations, Ethical Problems and Application Cases


In the context of Industry 4.0, companies are developing new types of digital products and application-specific services that enable e.g. error prediction for maintenance activities or optimise automated work plans for machines and people. In most cases, these services are intended for an isolated application and seldom allow integrative use beyond this particular purpose. This is where the joint project PRODISYS comes into play, in which an industrial cloud platform is developed, which prototypically enables the easy integration and combination of new and existing services and machines.


Paper on Data-Driven Operations Management Adds New Perspective on Digital Transformation of Industry

Cyber-Physical Systems are about to change the landscape of industrial practice. The enormous potential for innovation hidden in this new technology has been extensively researched over the past years. The challenge is now to find suitable operational structures to manage the application of cyber-physical practice in industry and process the gigantic amount of data they produce and exchange. In their new paper, Philipp Gölzer of Fraunhofer SCS and ...
