Abstract

Industry 4.0 aims to leverage the connected capabilities and intelligence of distributed socio-technical systems including people, computer-aided design and engineering tools, information systems and sensor networks, robotics, and advanced manufacturing, etc. to improve productivity, quality, flexibility, safety and sustainability across manufacturing enterprises and production environments. Building on this approach, there is also a greater promise of transformation in other industries such as construction and shipbuilding which have traditionally been laggards in direct digital manufacturing. Nonetheless, in order to be able to leverage the connected intelligence of the socio-technical network, we need corresponding tools and methods for Socio-Technical Network Analysis (STNA) and facilitate coordination and transaction of data, information, and knowledge between the distributed systems. This paper discusses the steps towards a framework for STNA in a connected design and manufacturing environment, especially focusing on assessment of transaction of data, information, and knowledge between the constituents of the distributed system. © 2021, The Editor(s) (if applicable) and The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
