The Future of Smart Production for SMEs

Abstract

This chapter offers a discussion on competence considerations for Industry 4.0 in light of changing work environments, and advocates for a human-centric approach to digitalization. Based on current literature on competence requirements, we present a brief overview of some key competences in a management, backend, and frontend typology. We will highlight some research initiatives, which focus on human factors, and end with an outlook on future directions within manufacturing, which seems much more inclusive and human-centric than what we are currently experiencing today.
