Industry 4.0 from the MIS Perspective

Edited By Sevinc Gülseçen, Zerrin Ayvaz Reis, Murat Gezer and Çiğdem Erol

Nowadays, an end-to-end industrial transformation called Industry 4.0 sets new goals for manufacturing and impacts on business outcomes. With some of its characteristic elements such as IoT (Internet of Things), digital twin simulation models, advanced robots, big data analytics, and virtual/augmented reality, Industry 4.0 is «de facto» going further. The book aims to provide relevant theoretical frameworks and the latest empirical research findings in the area of Management Information Systems (MIS) with the scope of Industry 4.0. The strategic role of Industry 4.0 in the distributed business environment and the necessity to protect and properly utilize its key elements at different levels of organizations as well as in society are discussed.

Development of a Central Controlled Automation Project on the IoT Platform

1.  Introduction

The widely accepted definition for the Internet of Things (IoT) is “The Internet of Objects is described by van Kranenburg, 2008 as “a dynamic global network infrastructure that is based on standard and interoperable communication protocols, where physical and virtual objects have physical attributes and virtual personalities, use intelligent interfaces, integrate seamlessly into the information network”. The IoT is a technology that allows physical objects and devices to communicate with each other through different communication technologies, sensors/actuators and RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags on the Internet. Today, many industrial field IoT technologies are being studied intensively (Li, Hou, Liu & Liu, 2012). In this context, the fact that objects can communicate independently over the Internet, the most common and powerful network, has become a key factor in many automation ideas.

The idea of merging computers, networks and sensors to control and monitor has become a much more popular concept in the last decade. Important factors such as the spread of IP-based networks, the miniaturization of computers, the rise of cloud computing technology trends and the developments in data analysis have triggered this popularity. Along with all these developments, sensor networks using RFID tags and advances also in near-field communication (NFC) technologies have constituted new visions for researchers (Whitmore, Agarwal...
