Introducing Industry 4.5 in Coil Manufacturing
Dr. Justin Goldston, Assistant Professor of Project and Supply Chain Management, Penn State University
As the pandemic of 2020 moved digital transformation projects higher on strategic agendas of around the world, leaders began to reach out to researchers and industry experts to further understand technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and edge computing for industrial application. With the inclusion of these technologies that are growing in adoption within various industries, the coil manufacturing sector will see an emergence of Integrated Intelligent Automation (IIA). With both scholars and practitioners identifying cybersecurity as a primary concern with Industry 4.0, this discussion will touch on how organizations can successfully implement IIA to safely architect the smart factory we envisioned back in 2010.
Dr. Justin Goldston is an Assistant Professor of Project and Supply Chain Management at Penn State University. Dr. Goldston has over 20 years of experience working with organizations around the world such as Intel, Siemens, and Blue Buffalo on business performance improvement, organizational change, and enterprise-wide digital transformation initiatives. Dr. Goldston is the author of multiple peer-reviewed journal articles on supply chain management and innovative technologies, of Critical Success Factors in ERP Implementations, and is a five-time TEDx speaker where he discussed emerging technologies such as blockchain and Artificial Intelligence. With his current research focused on Industrial Automation as we enter into Industry 4.5, Dr. Goldston has acknowledged the growing concern regarding cybersecurity within public and private enterprises. As organizations are adopting emerging technologies such as AI, Machine Learning, and Robotic Process Automation, leaders of these organizations must create mitigation strategies to counter disruptions with the introduction of new, innovative solutions. In his presentation, Dr. Goldston will discuss approaches and standards such as those instituted by the International Society of Automation, and how they can be transferable across different industries to fight cyber threats within the public and private sectors.
