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.

Secure Management Model for Scada Systems

1.  Introduction

It is a well-known fact that the use of the networking technologies increases communication, sharing of information and mutual interaction among the different systems. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a new technological concept that the intelligent devices (different sensors, application outputs, production data in factories) somehow communicate with each other and form an intelligent and autonomous network based on end-to-end digitalization concept. Together with the developments in technology, many sensor devices can be integrated into the internet environment through WSN (Wireless Sensor Networks) systems (Akyıldız et al., 2002). Real-time continuous stream of data coming from the sensing devices that are used in the environment and from the data terminals in the production systems of a factory are transformed to be used by information systems (storage, database, application services) provided by service providers (like cloud computing services) on the Internet. This kind of Industrial IoT (IIoT) information flow will result in changes that can positively affect our daily life, business life and industrial production systems (Lojka, Bundzel & Zolotová, 2016).

The technological advances based on scientific discoveries in different fields, called the Industrial Revolution, back from the 18th century up to today had three important stages with remarkable features according to the industrial systems used in different periods. Starting with mechanical production systems using steam power, the process has left serial...
