Cyber physical systems in service industry
With the advanced development of Cloud Computing and Internet of Things (IoT), the industrial sector has undertaken the new paradigm shift from the traditional manufacturing information system to the contemporary cyber physical system (CPS). Nowadays, enterprises are not only providing quality products but also value added service for the customers. There is increasing enthusiasm for exploring the latest information and production technologies for the CPS so as to enhance the productivity of both the production and service industry. Researchers have begun to propose a variety of conceptual ideas for industry 4.0, while the value added-service before and after production cannot be ignored. Further, some researchers have also initiated the concept of manufacturing as a service due to the emergence of cloud manufacturing, which is a new manufacturing paradigm supported by the latest core technology such as cloud computing and internet of things. However, not many studies have been conducted for incorporating IoT into the CPS to realize the vision of the service industry. Therefore, the main purpose of this ebook is to explore how to leverage the emerging technologies such as IoT, Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), Cloud Computing for service industry through a scientific research approach, and disseminate the newly acquired knowledge to researchers and industry. The architecture of Cyber-Physical Systems is of high importance as it helps to transform a production plant into an intelligent environment. Cyber-Physical Systems should possess autonomous, adaption and reconfiguration properties so as to achieve smart operations. With the Internet of Things (IoT), high volume, variety and velocity of data can be captured and big data analytics enable intelligent operation in response to the environment and feedback of the connected objects, such as equipment and facilities.
This ebook aims to raise the awareness of research on Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Internet of Things (IoT) and the Fourth Industrial Revolution to the current Industrial Management & Data Systems (IMDS) readership. More specifically, this special issue focuses on the state-of-art of CPS, IoT for the service industry and explores how the emerging technologies realize the concept of CPS in the service industry.
