Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

This paper aims at emphasize the importance of digital decision support systems (DSS) to enhance the human based decision making at the shop floor management (SFM) level. This paper suggest that there is an increased focus on implementing digital technologies for developing DSSs that are adapted to the current threshold of the Industry 4.0 (I4.0) era. It is believed that there is a call for appliance of digital technologies for decision support, as the complexity of infrastructures at manufacturing facilities increases and the environments are becoming more uncertain. Those companies who not move rapidly and focus on being responsive will fall behind and lose market share, due to the large competition seen today. This paper suggest that the adaptation of digital DSSs at the SFM level will support the practitioners in their decision-making processes, wherefrom the performance level will increase.
