Paper on Industry 5.0 published in Journal of Manufacturing Systems

While Industry 4.0 refers to efficiency increases through digitization and automation, Industry 5.0 aims at social and ecological changes. The focus is on holistic, sustainable and human-centric value creation, which also includes direct collaboration between humans and machines or robots.

In her essay Maturity assessment for Industry 5.0: A review of existing maturity models - ScienceDirect Franziska Hein-Pensel, former academic staff member at the Management/Organization group, and her co-authors examine the extent to which maturity models developed for Industry 4.0 take into account the specific requirements of human-centered value creation in Industry 5.0. In a systematic literature analysis of 297 German- and English-language publications, 24 maturity models were identified, discussed against the background of developments towards Industrie 5.0, and evaluated with regard to their suitability also for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The results serve as a basis for the development of maturity models for Industrie 5.0.
