About the Book
Organizations face an increasing complex and dynamic environment on the market. The Internet of Things and in particular the industrial internet respectively Industry 4.0 change the rules.
The development of systems requires a new kind of engineering and thinking. Companies that are capable of adapting themselves to the frequent and partially disruptive changes in the complex and dynamic markets will be successful in the future.
The book closes the gap between high-level reflections about digitalization and daily engineering methods and tools.
After an introduction and motivation of the theme, the book describes the first three industrial revolutions and their consequences and concludes with the predicted fourth industrial revolution. In light of the fourth industrial revolution, the second chapter explains the need for a new kind of engineering. The third chapter provides valuable principles, patterns, methods, and tools for engineering organizations to be successful on the playfield of the age of digitalization.
