In this panel, participants will briefly introduce Industry 4.0, digital, cyber and cloud manufacturing, smart factories and internet of things. Later, they will discuss their impact on the advanced manufacturing systems. Participants are also expected to share their opinion and/or experience in implementation challenges of these approaches in the industry both in the developed countries and developing countries. Finally, there will be discussions on how to incorporate these methods into various engineering curricula. We also expect audience participation in this panel at the end with questions and comments.
Dr. Cihan Dagli is a Professor of Systems Engineering and Engineering Management and also a Professor Computer and Electrical Engineering. He is the founder of Missouri S&T’s Systems Engineering Graduate Program. Dr. Dagli is also the Intelligent Systems Design Area Associate Editor for the International Journal of General Systems and the director of the Smart Engineering Systems Lab (SESL) at the Missouri S&T. He is Senior Investigator in DoD Systems Engineering Research Center-URAC. Dr. Dagli is a fellow of International Council of Systems Engineering INCOSE 2008 and Institute of Industrial Engineers IIE 2009.
He received B.S. and M.S. degrees in Industrial Engineering from the Middle East Technical University and a Ph.D. Applied Operations Research in Large Scale Systems Design and Operation from the University of Birmingham, United Kingdom, where from 1976 to 1979 he was a British Council Fellow.
Djerdj Horvat studied business and economics with special focus on international entrepreneurship at the University of Novi Sad in Serbia. Thereafter he did his Masters degree in Germany at the University of Potsdam in the Programme “Master of Economics and Business“ with focus on international finance, banking, innovation management and entrepreneurship. Parallel to the work at the institute he finished his doctoral thesis on “Absorptive capacity in foreign subsidiaries of multinational companies“ at the Freie Universität in Berlin at the Department of Innovation Management. Since November 2014 he has been employed as a researcher at the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research in Karlsruhe in the Competence Center Industrial and Service Innovations, since June 2015 in the Competence Center Policy – Industry – Innovation, Business Unit Industrial Innovation Strategies.
Dr. Nenad Ivezic is a research staff member of Systems Integration Division (SID) in the Engineering Laboratory (EL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Dr. Ivezic works on measurement science problems that typically lead to new testing methods and standards required to solve challenging technical problems in advanced manufacturing systems.
Dr. Ivezic leads projects that investigate advanced technologies for systems integration, semantic technologies, standardization, and testing. Some of the recent projects he initiated include Global Testing Network project, Supplier Discovery in Dynamically-Formed Supply Chains, Production Network Supplier Characterization, Manufacturing Network Service Models, and Smart Manufacturing Reference Architecture.
Dr. Ivezic has been a long-time contributor to the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) where he developed testing methods and standards for material replenishment and logistics processes. He is a two-time recipient (2006 and 2007) of the annual Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG) Outstanding Achievement Award. Nenad has been a long-time contributor to the Open Applications Group, where he lead development of the Business-to-Business Interoperability Testbed to commercial B2B software solutions to assure conformance to application standards and also co-chaired OAGi Semantic Integration Group. He is a recipient (2013) of the OAGi Outstanding Contributor Award.
Nenad extensively publishes on topics ranging from interoperability, advanced manufacturing, to testing, and standardization. He has been on international program committees of the Interoperability for Enterprise Systems and Applications Conference (I-ESA) since 2006 and the e-Challenges Conference from 2005-2012. He was the Chair of the Global Interoperability e-Business Test Bed (GITB) CEN Workshop and contributor to the development of the ebXML Business Process Catalog within the Un/CEFACT standard development organization.
Before joining NIST, he was a Senior Researcher at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where he worked on research problems at the intersection of manufacturing and information technologies and for which he was awarded three patents.
Lihui Wang is a Professor and Chair of Sustainable Production Systems at KTH, Sweden. He received his PhD and MS in Mechanical Engineering from Kobe University (Japan) in 1993 and 1990, respectively, and BS in Machine Design (China) in 1982. He was an Assistant Professor of Kobe University and Toyohashi University of Technology (Japan) prior to joining National Research Council of Canada (NRC) in 1998, where he was a Senior Research Scientist before moving to Sweden in 2008. His research interests are presently focused on human-robot collaboration, remote real-time monitoring and control, energy modelling, adaptive process planning, cloud-based prognosis, and sustainable cyber-physical production systems.
In addition to research work, Professor Wang is actively engaged in various professional activities. He is the Editor-in-Chief of International Journal of Manufacturing Research, Editor-in-Chief of Robotics and Computer-Integrated Manufacturing, Editor (Europe) of Journal of Intelligent Manufacturing, Associate Editor of Journal of Manufacturing Systems, Associate Editor of International Journal of Production Research, and an Editorial Board Member of other 11 international journals. He is a Board Director of North American Manufacturing Research Institution (NAMRI) of Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), the Scientific Committee Chair of NAMRI/SME, a Presidium Member of Swedish Production Academy (SPA), a Member of Technical Committees 278 (Robots and Robotic Devices) and 282 (Machinery Safety) of Swedish Standards Institute (SIS), a Member of ISO/TC199/SG1 (Safety Data for Human-Machine Interactions), and a registered Professional Engineer in Canada.
Professor Wang was elected a Fellow of CIRP, SME, and ASME.
