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.

Designing of Manufacturing Process with Mobile-Based Smart Systems

1.  Introduction

Before looking at Industry 4.0, it is necessary to remember the previous industrial revolutions: In 1698, the first commercial steam machine developed by the British engineer Thomas Savery, and then steam technology developed by James Watt in 1763, became the starting point of the first industrial revolution. With the first industrial revolution, the first transition was made from manpower production to machine production (mass production).

The industrial revolution means shifting from a production style based on human and animal power to a production style dominated by machine power. This type of production emerged in England in the 18th century especially in the weaving sector, then spread to other areas. With the transition of machine-based production has increased in shape and quantity (Yediyıldız, 1994).

As seen in Fig. 1, the beginning of the use of electrical energy in the 18th century and the introduction of steel into the production process led to the development of transportation, logistics, the mass production bands and thus the second industrial revolution. The growth of the automotive sector with the development of petrol-based internal combustion engines has been the decisive factor in the industrial revolution.

The emergence of digitally based microchips and computers and the use of these...
