Abstract


The current discussion about the industrial Internet of Things (IoT) focuses in particular on diverse technologies and their possible applications in companies. However, the actual potential benefits and objectives of the fourth industrial revolution for companies are often neglected. The challenges posed by the increasing number of variants and decreasing batch sizes up to batch size one require special adaptability and flexibility. The aim is not only to offer customized products, but also to produce them with the efficiency of a mass production. This affects numerous business sectors. Whereas in the past the search for efficiency potentials was focused on the production process, it is now essential to consider strategic and operational corporate areas beyond production – the so-called overhead processes. The required flexibility of companies to produce mass-customized goods leads to an increased complexity of internal processes and a high proportion of additional overhead activities for the management of resources. In this paper, we provide an approach to automate repetitive, non-creative activities in all value added processes and to connect overhead processes with the production so that a fast, automated response to unplanned events in production is facilitated. Hence, an economical production can be realized in the context of mass customization.
