Press release
The essence of industry 4.0 is the realisation of a so-called Smart Factory. The Smart Factory is characterised by the intelligent networking between human and machine in production and logistics. For the integration of human beings into the Smart Factory in the future, novel human-machine interfaces are obligatory. These shall be formed by interactive assistance systems. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are aware of the importance of this technology, which is essential for industry 4.0, but they hesitate to introduce it in comparison to big enterprises. The main reasons are that SMEs are normally not able to estimate the potential of interactive assistance systems and do not know the requirements for their usage. In addition, they have no systematic approach to fulfil these requirements. The target of this research project is the development of an approach which allows SMEs the introduction of interactive assistance systems into their production and logistics with little effort. Therefore maturity models are an appropriate approach. Thereby the maturity model, which is to be developed, shall offer enterprises an evident orientation for the introduction of interactive assistant systems into production and logistics.

Publications about the project

This lecture discusses the results of the research project "4.0 Ready", and goes into detail about the potentials and barriers of the implementation of interactive assistance systems, especially in the service and maintenance, as well as the support of the implementation by the use of maturity models.

Data glasses or data gloves as a novel human-machine interface allow intelligent networking within the Smart Factory. Due to lack of implementation strategies small and medium-sized enterprises hesitate to integrate these technologies in production and logistics. In this context, the following article describes a maturity-based approach for a systematic and holistic planning and controlling of the implementation of these interactive assistance systems (IAS).

The realization of the Smart Factory represents the core of the industry 4.0. The aim of the Smart Factory is a complete digitization of information and intelligent networking of machines, storage systems and resources. For the efficient integration of humans in the Smart Factory novel human-machine interfaces are necessary, which can be interactive assistance systems such as data glasses, data gloves or headsets.

The implementation of interactive assistance systems such as data glasses is a further step towards the smart factory to master the complexity in production and logistics by increasing customer requirements. To demonstrate the potential and the benefits of these technologies to small and medium enterprises (SMEs), a compendium was developed as part of the research project 4.0 Ready, which provides an overview of existing assistance systems. During the project maturity models are developed to support SMEs in holistically and systematically planning and controling the implementation of interactive assistance systems.
