Interoperability for Human-Centered Manufacturing
Paper in proceeding, 2018

Interoperability is of high focus for the manufacturing industry that is currently undergoing a transformation into the fourth industrial revolution. Factories are adopting smart technologies and implementing decentralized and human-centered manufacturing systems. To use ICT for cognitive automation and information sharing is becoming more common and increasingly important for factory workers. To implement these ICT solutions, it is important to consider their interoperability with the entire manufacturing system. This study suggests a framework that combines the context of human-centered manufacturing with areas of concerns in enterprise systems. The framework is presented and discussed regarding its usefulness to assess and/or improve system interoperability.
