Título da Proposta de Tese: "CONCEPTUAL MODELLING OF STRUCTURAL AND BEHAVIORAL ELEMENTS IN AUTOMATED PRODUCTION SYSTEMS"

Abstract:
"In a more competitive business environment, where technology is driving major transformations, being capable of keeping up with the pace of change is crucial to remain a
relevant business player. Since its introduction, Industry 4.0 (I4.0) has been aiming at solving some of these challenges by encompassing multiple concepts, which leads to a considerable challenge to integrate very distinct fields. Growing integration between Internet of Everything (IoE) and the industrial value chain, as well as the complexities involved in the integration between Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Cyber-Physical Production Systems (CPPS) require a systematization of knowledge that allows the description of these elements, their integration, interoperability and realization of benefits expected from I4.0. Moreover, I4.0 elements have also behavioral aspects that lack a proper representation in conceptual models. Current semantic tools have gaps in their ability to represent these behavioral elements. It is important that this systematization also enable the precise description of the elements and their characteristics, including flexibility and change capability so the full potential of the 4th industrial revolution can be unleashed. To do so, addressing the gaps of semantic description tools, as well as proposing a methodology to include behavioral elements in conceptual description as necessary steps. This research proposal analyses current gaps towards a model that allows representing both structural and behavioral characteristics of I4.0 elements and suggesting a few steps to address those gaps.

Keywords: industry 4.0, conceptual model, ontology."
